NEW GLASGOW – The Pictou County Chapter of MADD will be holding its second annual Strides for Change walk in New Glasgow on Oct. 25 at 2 p.m.
Strides for change is a MADD Canada signature walk and awareness campaign designed to fulfil MADD Canada’s mission to stop impaired driving and to support the victims of violent crime.
The afternoon will kick off at Glasgow Square with guest speakers, inclusive of victims of impaired driving. This will be followed by a walk through downtown New Glasgow, ending back at Glasgow Square with light refreshments and reflective thought on those affected by impaired driving.
On average four Canadians are killed and 175 are injured every day in Canada. About 65,000 Canadians are impacted by impaired drivers annually.
The Strides for Change walk being held in Pictou County advocates MADD Canada’s mandate and the local chapter fully supports MADD’s campaign to raise the awareness of our local citizens of the impact of impaired driving.
