Thousands of walkers and runners will make strides in the ongoing fight against drunk driving during the 9th Annual Ultimate Software presents the La Croix & Lennox National Account Services Walk Like MADD & MADD Dash Fort Lauderdale 5k brought to you by UBS on Sunday, April 28. This event is MADD Broward County’s annual signature fundraising event in support of its mission to end drunk driving. It takes place in over 90 cities in the U.S., including Fort Lauderdale.
The day’s festivities will also include children’s activities, an awards ceremony, live musical performances and vendor/educational booths. The event will be attended by local dignitaries including Founder and Volunteer Chairperson Heather Geronemus, event co-chair Rachel Perz, and honorary chairs Matthew ‘Whiz’ Buckley and Major Robert Chandler.
Since it was established in 2011, this event has raised over $1.75 million that stays in our community to save lives and support victims of drunk driving. All event proceeds benefit MADD Broward & Palm Beach’s community education, victim support services and youth programs.
“Drunk driving is 100 percent preventable and we are working to educate the community so that we can see a future with no more victims,” said Geronemus, Plantation resident and vibrant young professional at Ultimate Software who established and chaired the Fort Lauderdale event since 2011. Her late father, Dr. Robert Perry Geronemus, was struck and killed by a drunk driver in 2009. “The community has really come together over the past nine years to support MADD’s mission to end drunk driving and we are excited for another successful year of fundraising and raising awareness.”
