Town of Dickinson, NY (WBNG-Binghamton) Spiedie Fest may have been last weekend, but hundreds of people went back to Otsiningo Park Saturday to take steps toward a cure for ALS.
The Walk to Defeat ALS kicked off Saturday morning.
More than 350 people hit the pavement to raise money to find a cure for Lou Gehrig's disease.
Family, friends, loved ones and even some people with the disease walked around the park.
Co-chairwoman of the walk, Emily Arbes, said the event not only raises money but raises awareness, and the crowd grows larger every year.
"It's a great feeling. We've worked really hard and thought of new ideas to spread the word and to make people want to raise money and to see this, I think it means we did something right," Arbes said.
The Walk to Defeat ALS is an annual event in the Southern Tier, and around the county.
