Default Walk to Defeat ALS Pittsburgh

Hey everyone!

My name's Ken, and I'm new to this forum. My father was diagnosed with ALS this past December, and it has definitely been a life-changing experience. I am a new graduate of the University of Pittsburgh and I'm currently involved in the Western PA chapter of the ALS Association as a walk committee member and volunteer; and I'm also looking to get into ALS research.

I thought it wouldn't hurt to advertise the ALS Association's biggest annual event: The Walk to Defeat ALS. I'm sure you guys are all familiar with how difficult it is to spread awareness of ALS, and this year, I'm really trying to push this event in Pittsburgh and have the ALS association raise as much money as possible for ALS research and caregiving.

I'm not sure what the rules are for posting links on here...

[Linking is pretty limited, and fundraising is off limits. Welcome to the forum, though! I'm sorry about your dad.]

I believe these walks are all over the country so give the web a search for one in your area!

Thanks guys and I look forward to getting involved more with this forum!

Ken
