Our National Strides for Change Event Is Going Virtual!

MADD Canada’s National Strides for Change (originally slated to be part of the Mississauga Marathon in 2020) has been cancelled due to COVID-19. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still make Strides for Change on our own! 

We are excited to announce a virtual Strides for Change run/walk which will held throughout the month of September

You choose the day in September that best fits your schedule, choose your location and distance!  Register via our great online event platform (created by our friends at Gigit)!  Then start encouraging family, friends and coworkers to support your run/walk!

Impaired driving kills hundreds of people and injures tens of thousands each year. Our National Strides for Change is held annually to help raise awareness and funds to prevent impaired driving and to support victims and survivors.  

Your efforts, and the support from those pledging you, will help us continue our awareness, education and public policy efforts to stop impaired driving, and our victim services programs in support of those individuals and families who have been so tragically impacted by this terrible crime.
