Vernon Peoples Drug Mart Walk for ALS
2600 British Columbia 6
Vernon, BC V1T 5G4
Join us for the 5th Annual Peoples Drug Mart Walk for ALS on Sunday, June 14th, 2015. This fun filled community event will be kicking off at 10:00 AM at Polson Park, in Vernon, BC; with the 5km Walk Starting at 11:00 AM. Everyone is welcome and invited to this family friendly event!
Proceeds from the Peoples Drug Mart Walk for ALS go to the ALS Society of BC to fund research and to provide support for those living with ALS. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal neuromuscular disease that affects the person’s motor neurons which carry messages to the muscles. When these muscles fail to receive messages, they lose strength, atrophy and die, leaving the person immobilized.
Throughout the event you will be able to enjoy a host of wonderful activities, with a local flare, organized by our amazing team of local volunteers. You will also be joining together with other families, volunteers, sponsors and teams to make a significant impact on the lives of many local families struggling daily with ALS. Thanks to your support and to the extensive network of committed ALS volunteers working in communities across B.C. and the Yukon, we are making unprecedented inroads.
Right now, the ALS community has an extraordinary chance to step forward with renewed confidence and vigor. Promising new discoveries of inquiry offer so many reasons for us to see a brighter future for the ALS mission. Register to Walk for ALS, and together, we can provide more hope.
Walk with us to stop ALS in its tracks.
