joe says "madd 5k"

Anyone who knows Joe knows that drunk and distracted driving is an issue near and dear to his heart. For 45 years as a personal injury attorney he's seen countless Mainers whose lives have been ruined or even ended by drunk driving. That's why he started the Arrive Alive Creative Contest, and it's why today he's supporting the Mothers Against Drunk Driving 5k Walk/Run. MADD is an organization whose mission is “to aid the victims of crimes performed by individuals driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, to aid the families of such victims and to increase public awareness of the problem of drinking and drugged driving."

Walk Like MADD is this organization's signature fundraising event to help raise both awareness and funds to eliminate drunk driving. Last year, tens of thousands of people in over 90 cities across the nation participated, and together, they raised raised over 3 million dollars to provide MADD's programs and services at no cost. With every step taken and each dollar raised, walkers are supporting MADD’s lifesaving mission to keep our families and communities safe.

Joe offers his heartfelt thanks to the mothers of MADD and urges you to learn more by visiting their website.
