ENDUI walk pays tribute to those killed in drunk driving accidents
TULSA, Okla. (KTUL) —
People gathered at the OSU-Tulsa campus Saturday morning to participate in an ENDUI walk.
Participants walked 1.01 miles to remember the 101 people who lost their lives in a drunk driving accident within the last four years in Tulsa County.
Pamela Birch spoke at the event to share her personal experience of a drunk driver hitting her husband.
He is now permanently disabled.
"To get behind the wheel of a car and put other's lives in danger as well as your own you have no idea what that does to families and what they lose and how hard it is for them to recover from that," she said. "We will continue to fight this as long as we have breath in our bodies."
After the walk, people let go of balloons to represent their loved ones.
The Health Department helped make this walk possible.
There is another DUI awareness walk next Saturday in Pryor.
