Anti-drunk driving event needs volunteers
WALLA WALLA — Planning for the Walla Walla Walks Against Drunk Driving event is under way, and The Walla Walla County Traffic Safety Task Force will host a meeting Thursday for people interested in volunteering to help.
The meeting starts at 4:30 p.m. at the Walla Walla County Community Services Building, 1520 Dalles Military Road. Those who want to help before or during the Sept. 14 event but cannot attend the meeting may call Nancy McClenney-Walters at 524-2936.
Funds raised from the event — this year featuring mile, 10k and 5k runs — assist victims of alcohol-related collisions. Money also is available for local prevention programs in Walla Walla County schools.
Runner and walker registration will open on Saturday through the Walla Walla Area Crime Watch page at www.wwacw.com or by contacting McClenney-Walters.
