Event Description

June 11, 2013 Updated Jun 11, 2013 at 7:50 AM EST

ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that usually attacks both upper and lower motor neurons and causes degeneration throughout the brain and spinal cord. A common first symptom is a painless weakness in a hand, foot, arm or leg, which occurs in more than half of all cases. Other early symptoms include speech swallowing or walking difficulty.

Please join us on August 10th at Otsiningo Park as we raise awareness and funds to those living with ALS. All funds raised at the Walk will benefit local patient programs across 48 counties in Upstate New York. Our accomplishments are made possible by the generosity of others. From the smallest donation to the largest gift, donors touch the ALS community with hope for the future.
