SHOUT OUT: The first annual END DWI Walk of Remembrance, dedicated to reminding people about the dangers and potential hearbreak of drunk driving while raising funds for the group’s mission, is scheduled at Van Saun Park in Paramus this Sunday, Sept. 29.
“Every step taken by those who participate is for someone who can no longer take that step as a result of a totally preventable tragedy — a drunk-driving incident,” said Bogota Police Chief John Burke, a member of END DWI’s Board of Directors.
The event will include a ceremony at the END DWI Memorial Tree Grove, where trees are planted and bricks placed along the path in honor of drunk-driving victims.
