SAVE THE DATE!
We are planning an ALS WALK to raise funds for the ALS Guardian Angels, a foundation dedicated to giving financial aid to families of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
This is our 1st Annual Walk and we really need your support to make it a success. For those of you who have never participated in a Walk before, this is not a competition or a long distance event. It is simply a group of us coming together at the same time, at a leisurely pace, to walk in honor of those who cannot walk anymore. We welcome wheelchairs, walkers, strollers, kids and dogs. Just come!
Many of us will be walking in honor or memory of a loved one. If any of you have been touched by ALS, maybe you would like to do the same. You can walk as an individual or form a team in honor or memory of your loved one.
We cannot do this without you. Please help us.
