4th annual Branford Walk Like MADD 2012 event
The Branford walk is the largest in Connecticut. For this year's event, a Shelton cheer team and a group walking in memory of Viviana Cavalli raised about $2,000 each.
Dee Tutka, Viviana's mother made a short speech before the 5K walk began.
"A quick game of beer pong sealed the fate of two beloved teens, leaving one survivor -- my daughter's best friend -- behind, as a victim as a well. A miracle indeed itself that she survived," Tutka said. Her full speech can be watched in the included video.
