WECARE/SADD remembrance march Wednesday

March 26, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- The fifth annual March March to promote responsible drinking and remember those who have been lost because of alcohol and other drugs will take place 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27.

The event, which is open to the general public, is being sponsored by Western's Community for Alcohol Responsibility and Education/Students Against Driving Drunk, or WeCARE/SADD.

Those planning to participate should gather at the flagpoles near the Lee Honors College at the center of the West Campus. A brief candle-lighting ceremony will be held before marchers begin a short memorial walk around campus. The walk will conclude back at the flagpoles with a presentation by a speaker at about 8:30 p.m. In case of bad weather, the presentation will take place in the Bigelow Hall lounge.

The WeCARE/SADD student group organizes numerous activities throughout the academic year to promote responsible drinking and raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving.

For more information, call Victor Manzon, WMU director of alcohol and other drug prevention, at (269) 387-2260.
