Hyundai Donates $25,000 To Mothers Against Drunk Driving

Posted on May 21, 2012

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Hyundai Motor America presented a $25,000 check to Mothers Against Drunk Driving on May 12 during the opening ceremony of its annual "Walk Like MADD" 5k walk in Huntington Beach, Calif. The walk raised awareness for MADD's  mission to stop drinking and driving, support victims and prevent underage drinking. In its ongoing commitment to driver safety, Hyundai was the presenting sponsor of the event for the second consecutive year.

"Walk Like MADD," MADD's signature walk, is a community-driven 5K walk that raises funds and saves lives. This year's event drew more than 1,200 participants and included a Hyundai Veloster display, a 1,000-cranes origami project to bring hope to the victims and survivors of drunk driving crashes, a live performance by Redneck Rodeo, and law enforcement support from the California Highway Patrol and the police departments of Santa Ana, Orange, Huntington Beach and Irvine.

Hyundai has partnered with MADD since 2005 when it sponsored a program that educated high school students on the dangers of drinking and driving. Hyundai has since expanded that partnership and is now the presenting partner for "Walk Like MADD." The walking event in Orange County is one of MADD's largest 5K walks.

Hyundai's participation at the "Walk Like MADD" walk event is part of its larger corporate social responsibility program that runs under the mantra of "doing good things together." Hyundai is committed to being a responsible member of the community and giving back to its neighbors while focusing on youth health and education nationwide.
