The members of the Central and Sallisaw Youth Coalitions will Walk Like MADD on Thursday.
Amy Edwards, Drug Prevention Specialist, explained the students are raising money for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD, and have collected over $1,000 by getting sponsorships.
Walk Like Madd is taking place in over 60 communities around the nation in hopes of eliminating drunk driving on the roads.
Edwards and Taylor Chadwell, also a prevention specialist, will be walking with the students. The walk begins at 4 p.m. in front of the Sallisaw Police Department, and will make a short circle around the block to show support for MADD. Edwards said the event will take about 30 minutes.
