Annual Bachus & Schanker Walk Like MADD Family Day

On Saturday, August 2nd hundreds assembled at Sloan’s Lake Park in Denver, Colorado to participate in Mother’s Against Drunk Driving‘s 3rd Annual Walk Like MADD fund raising event. In spite of the record breaking, triple digit temperatures, spirits were high and the pace was brisk as attorneys and staff of Bachus & Schanker, along with their families (and 6 dogs), joined hundreds of other walkers and volunteers to ultimately raise over $99,000 ($5,000 over their goal of $95,000) for the Denver MADD chapter. These donations are used to support the local community by providing support programs for victims of drunk driving and programs to help prevent drunk driving and underage drinking.

After the 5K walk was completed, the staff and families of Bachus & Schanker and families of our clients who are victims of drunk driving accidents, moved on to another section of Sloan’s Lake Park for our Annual Family Bar-B-Que. The food was terrific and the company was even better. There were games of volleyball and badminton, great bar-b-que, ice cream sandwiches and lots of babies!

In addition to our corporate sponsorship of $8500, Bachus & Schanker employees raised and additional $985. Jeffrey Drouin won a $100 Mastercard Gift Card as the top fund raiser with $275 and Melissa Baker took second place, earning a $50 Mastercard Gift Card by raising $125.
