Our new benches going all across New Brunswick This past year has been quite busy yet exciting for us here at Madd Saint John & Area Chapter, with lots of events, fundraisers and public awareness appearances happening. We have done many roadsides this year, encouraging drivers to Drive Safe & Sober. There has also been some new changes that have happened. Your local Madd Saint John Area Chapter presented new benches all across the province from Sussex, to Saint John, to Quispamsis, and to Grand Bay. These are placed in honour and memory of victims of impaired driving. A special Thank you to Brenan’s Funeral Homes and Smet Monuments for their involvement with this project. As you saw in our President’s Note, Gina Hooley is our new President for our Chapter. She is a hard worker and a well deserved President. Jennifer Letson, who has been with Madd for over a year, is a great addition to this Chapter. Facts&Information We need your continued support to provide education and prevention in the greater Saint John area! MADD Canada estimates there are somewhere between 1,250 and 1,500 impairment-related crash deaths in Canada alone each year (3.4– 4.1 deaths per day). 43% of all deaths by car crashes are caused by impaired drivers Impaired driving is 100% preventable! It is a choice, not an accident. All funds raised stay in the local chapter area! Madd Canada has a long way from ending impaired driving so we need YOUR help!
Hi Everyone, I would like to take a moment to introduce myself, my name is Gina Hooley and I will be the President of the MADD Saint John and Area Chapter for the upcoming year. I was born and raised in Saint John. I have three small children, and a wonderful partner Tim. I work full-time for Park Place Apartments. I, myself, was personally impacted by impaired driving, December 2010. And, if you're wondering, yes, life is crazy busy. Regardless of how busy life is today, we must never forget about tomorrow. I feel it is very important to take the time in life for the small things and to not forget about others, even if they are not a direct impact on your own life. With that being said I became involved with MADD in 2010. I was guided through many processes by Karen Dunham, both as a victim and as a volunteer. I have spent the past few years co-coordinating and collecting for the annual strides fundraiser, as well as participating in grocery bagging days and project red ribbon. For those of you who have busy lives, as myself, I want to take this moment to deeply thank you for attending and participating in Strides 2014. Whether it was as a participant, a donor, a pledge, or just simply purchasing a ticket. At that moment you stood above and beyond and took a step in helping us towards our mission to stop impaired drivers and to support victims of this violent crime. I look forward to working together with all of you again next year. Together we can reach for the moon and land on the stars. Sincerely, Gina Hooley The President’s Note Help your Saint John community: NVER dink and drive or get in the car with a drunk driver. You will save innocent lives. Looking to Donate?
