ALS FUNDRAISING EVENT
More than 1,000 caring supporters are expected to join in the South Florida Walk to Defeat ALS, starting with registration at 8:30 a.m., March 2 at TY (Topeekeegee Yugnee) Park, 3300 N. Park Rd., Hollywood. The walk begins at 10 a.m. Many of the walkers have a loved one fighting the disease. Others will walk in memory of someone who has lost the battle.
This event raises funds and awareness for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, a progressive and fatal neurodegenerative disease. There is no known cause or cure. ALS patients, including many in wheelchairs, will join in the event.
The Walk is the ALS Association’s signature fundraising event. Last year, walks in Florida cities raised nearly $1.2 million. To get involved visit www.WalktoDefeatALS.org, or call 888-257-1717, ext. 126. For more, go to www.ALSAFL.org.
