My firm is honored to again be the Title Sponsor of the Fort Worth Walk and Dash Like MADD.
I just had the pleasure of meeting with Jason Derscheid, the Executive Director for North Texas, to discuss the event. Mothers Against Drunk Driving is one of my favorite causes.
This is MADD’s 35th year (and mine as a personal injury lawyer). Seeing the devastation caused by drunk drivers has made me a proud supporter of this great cause.
The event on October 24th will raise the public’s awareness of the dangers of drunk driving. The 5K walk and run will begin in an exciting new location on Panther Island, cross the bridge, and meander through our pretty Trinity Park.
If you haven’t participated in one of MADD’s events before, they are moving experiences.
And here’s a thought to cool you off: think how good the lower temps will feel that morning!
Berenson Injury Law Will Match Your Entrance Fee
The walk/run is an opportunity for you to show your support for victims of drunk driving and to advocate for stricter DWI laws and stronger education of teens about the dangers of underage drinking and drunk driving.
In addition to individual registrations, many families, companies, school groups and friends register as teams in honor of loved ones.
Berenson Injury Law will match your entrance fee with a donation of the same amount to MADD.
Why I Sponsor MADD
My personal injury law firm has represented far too many individuals who were injured in DWI accidents and families of victims killed by intoxicated drivers. I have witnessed firsthand the loss and devastation caused by drunk driving. The affluenza teen case I was involved in last year and was last month’s cover story in D Magazine especially angered me.
Obviously drunk driving is 100 percent preventable. There is no reason that every two minutes, an American has to be injured in a drunk driving collision or that more than 10,000 Americans have to die in one. Since 1980, MADD has helped save over 300,000 lives and will continue to do the Lord’s work.
MADD’s mission is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking. The nonprofit organization lobbies for effective DWI laws that take drunk drivers off the roads. MADD educates teens and their parents about the dangers of underage drinking. MADD also provides crucial services to DUI victims and their families.
