Last year, a group of friends and I raised money and walked to help fight ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. My family’s close friend has ALS and so this is a meaningful charity to me and I know it would mean a lot to my mom as well.
Robin’s Walkers raised $5,886.82 for the last New York ALS Walk and we had a good time doing it. The event even made us (at least temporarily) famous! You can see Robin’s Walkers on the ALS Walk homepage at http://alswalks.org/. So, when it came time to decide about this year’s walk, we were in. The 5K will take place on May 14, which gives me a good two months to fundraise. If you’re interested in donating (no pressure!), you can do so by visiting my personal page here. Any amount is greatly appreciated by me and by the ALS Association.
