ALS Awareness 5k Run Walk Mark your calendars for August 20, 2016 and the 5th annual ALS Awareness 5k Run Walk! The first 4 years were amazing and the 5th will be even more special. With your help, we will surpass the $100,000 mark for money raised for ALS research. Proceeds from this event are sent to Les Turner Foundation and ALS Worldwide to help further their research. In 2015, there were 495 registered runners and walkers with over $25,000 raised. We need to pass the 500 mark in our 5th year! As always, the volunteers have been great and the generosity of the donors and participants has been outstanding. Thank you to each and every one of them.
