Default Edmonton's Walk

Hi folks

Just wanted to telll you that we had our Walk for ALS in Edmonton yesterday morning.

The weather was bright and clear in the river valley as gathered around the stage for the start. We had a band playing and coffee provided by Starbucks for the sendoff.
There were hundreds of walkers participating, and as usual, it was a great social gathering. We chatted, laughed and visited our way around Hawrelak Park...it was so nice.
At the end, we learned that we raised at least $130,000! We also took time to recognize those PALS, CALS, family and friends still with us and honoured those who passed on.

All in all another great event organized by the team from ALS Alberta!

Well done!
