Walk to Defeat ALS : October 2018
October 31, 2018
"As the preeminent ALS organization, The Association leads the way in research, care services, public education, and public policy – giving help and hope to those facing the disease.” http://www.alsa.org/about-us/
The ALS Association has chapters all over the country. The individual chapters focus on helping patients and families living in their area. While the national office focuses on research and advocacy. The local chapter, the Rocky Mountain Chapter, was founded in 1996. The ALS has a simple mission; to provide assistance to those living with the disease and to find a cure.
Each individual chapter hold their own events to help fundraise money for their mission. On October 13th the Rocky Mountain ALS chapter hosted the 2018 Walk to Defeat ALS. This walk helps fundraise funds to support the organization’s mission. All funds that are collected impact individuals at the local level.
A few of our employees and their families have a personal connection to this horrible disease who participate in the Walk to Defeat ALS each year. They each had a great time at this year’s event. This was Plumbline Services’ 2nd year donating to this great cause. It is our honor to help support this mission. We hope to one day see the end of ALS.
