Adler Giersch ps was a sponsor and team walking in the 2nd Annual Walk Like MADD 5k to benefit Mother’s Against Drunk Driving. The team contributed over $2000.00 to MADD. Team Adler Giersch walked in memory of Ellen Rose Floyd.
“Ellie” was only 17 years old. On April 10, 2010, when she was a passenger in a vehicle that was speeding and went out of control. The driver of the car she was in was drunk. They had also just left a house party where underage drinking parties were common and alcohol was always readily available.
The mission of Washington Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) is to stop drunk driving, support the victims of this violent crime and prevent underage drinking in Washington state.*
By walking Adler Giersch hopes to raise awareness of not only drunk driving, but underage drunk driving and those adults who allow kids to drink. We encourage others to walk, run, speak out, write editorials, talk to neighbors and to continue to be heard in all ways possible to stop drunk driving and underage drinking!
