Strides for Change is MADD Canada’s annual walk/run.

The annual 5 km walk/run supports Chapters and Community Leaders in their efforts to educate the public about the

dangers of impaired driving and to help victims in their communities. The campaign is also an opportunity to keep safe and sober driving top of mind during the spring and summer months when the rate of impaired-related crashes are traditionally higher. Events are held in communities across Canada over the late spring and early summer. Please refer to the calendar section to find an event in your area. In addition to a leisurely walk or run along local parks or trails, the events feature a number of activities and attractions for participants. For more information on Strides for Change, how you can participate and tips on raising pledges, please visit the Strides for Change web site.

MADD Canada National Strides for Change is now part of the 2020 Mississauga Marathon

All event organizers in Canada and around the world have been monitoring the news and government updates regarding COVID-19.  Unfortunately at this time, the 2020 Mississauga Marathon, which was scheduled for May 1-3, 2020 has been postponed.

This is in the best interest of everyone as we want to do whatever we can to limit and reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Organizers of the Mississauga Marathon are working closely with the City of Mississauga to confirm a rescheduled 2020 date and an announcement in this regard will be made shortly. All registered participants will automatically be deferred to the new date once confirmation has been received from the City of Mississauga.

We will update this page with registration information as soon as it becomes available.
