Local law enforcement supports End DWI

Supporters of End DWI at the ceremony and remembrance walk held last weekend in Paramus.
This past Sunday, September 29, local law enforcement members, volunteers, supporters and victims of driving while intoxicated accidents gathered in Van Saun Park for the first annual End DWI Walk of Remembrance.

The mission of End DWI is "to provide support to victims and families effected by impaired driving through a myriad of services and to create public awareness about devastating effects and the need to end driving while intoxicated."

Approximately 150 people attended the first annual event held at the End DWI Memorial Tree Grove. More than 20 police chiefs and law enforcement members from Bergen County were in attendance at the event to support the efforts of this organization. Our own Police Chief Michael Carr, a member of the Police Pipes and Drums of Bergen County, played the bagpipes during the ceremony,

The ceremony in the Memorial Tree Grove was followed by a 1 1/2 mile walk through Van Saun Park.

End DWI is looking for both volunteers as well as funding. If you are interested in donating to the organization or becoming a volunteer, email or mail to END DWI, P.O. Box 156, Bogota, NJ 07603.

It is important that we all support organizations such as End DWI, which seek to honor the memory of those lost to DWI accidents, help the families left behind and work to bring an end to this senseless, preventable crime.
