Do you remember the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge where people pour ice-cold buckets of water on their head to raise awareness about the disease? Well, believe it or not, it’s been five years since that campaign was launched.
To commemorate the 5th anniversary the ASL Association of New Mexico chapter is asking for your help to finish what was started in 2014 when the whole country came together to support people with ASL and the search for a cure.
Sunday, September 22, New Mexicans can get involved with the “Walk to Defeat ALS.” Check-in for the event starts at 8 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m. at Isotopes Park.
The New Mexico Chapter was founded in 1999 by a small group of passionate individuals touched by ALS to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and their families. The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS.
