ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Families affected by drunk driving are thanking people for coming out and supporting each other while raising awareness about DWI.
“It’s a cause I wish we didn’t have to support, but I think it’s just getting the message out, that there are consequences to your actions,” said Dolly Salazar.
Dolly Salazar lost her son Jacob Salazar last year, after police say a drunk driver crossed into the wrong lane on Coors, killing the 19-year-old University of New Mexico student.
Sunday, Dolly Salazar and her husband Jake Salazar joined Mothers Against Drunk Driving for “Walk like MADD,” a fundraising 5k followed by a gathering at UNM’s Johnson Field.
Despite the subject, there was plenty of fun for the whole family, including a kid’s zone and live band.
