MADD presentation at LV Rogers

Students to hear powerful message

MADD Nelson Chapter is bringing a powerful message to L V Rogers Secondary students about the dangers of impaired driving called The Pact.

The Pact, MADD Canada’s 2017-2018 School Assembly Program film, shows students the risks and consequences of driving while drunk and/or high.

Road crashes are the number one cause of death among teens and young adults, and alcohol and/or drugs are involved in more than half of those crashes. Every year, MADD Canada produces a new School Assembly Program to educate students in Grades 7 – 12 about the risks of impaired driving.

“MADD Canada’s School Assembly Program engages young people in a dialogue about the real risks of driving impaired by alcohol and/or drugs, and provides them with the information and tools they need to make safe and responsible choices,” said Pat Henmanm, the MADD Nelson Community Leader.

The Pact will be shown on February 15th at 2:00 pm at L V Rogers Secondary.
