Denver Colorado MADD Walk 2009; We Love to Walk like MADD
On Saturday, August 1st, Bachus & Schanker participated in the 4th Annual Walk Like MADD 5K walk at Sloan’s Lake Park to support Mothers Against Drunk Driving. As MADD Colorado’s 2009 Statewide Sponsor and a returning Walk Like MADD sponsor, Bachus & Schanker had a big role in the day with Kyle Bachus and Darin Schanker taking part in the opening ceremonies to present team awards. The law firm also fielded not one, but two teams of walkers with Darin’s Destroyers finishing in the Top 5 Corporate teams.
The 2009 Denver Walk Like MADD set event records in funds raised, number of teams, and number of attendees. The walk raised $110,748.41–an increase of 12% from the 2008 event–to support MADD Colorado’s work to stop drunk driving, support the victims of the violent crime, and prevent underage drinking. Eighty nine teams participated and 1,000 people attended the walk.
