Get Out And Support ‘Walk To Defeat ALS’ This Weekend
“Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within two to five years of diagnosis. For unknown reasons, veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population. There is no cure, and only one drug approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) modestly extends survival.”
So make sure to come out this Saturday to support those suffering from ALS and their families. Let’s raise money to further research to find a cure!

Walk starts 11:00am
