Walk To Defeat ALS Sat. Aug. 5th Coca-Cola Field

Many know ALS as Lou Gerhig’s Disease, robbing people of the ability to walk, speak, or even breathe.

WBBZ-TV, Your Hometown MeTV Station is supporting a great hometown event – the Walk To Defeat ALS – Saturday morning August 5th at Coca Cola Field.

Registration is at 9:30a.m., with the walk at 11a.m.

Many people in Western New York, and their families, are dealing with ALS and the impact it has on loved ones.  We are also walking in honor of our friend and former colleague, Irv Weinstein.  The beloved retired anchor of “Eyewitness News” is battling ALS from his home in California.  ( photo: courtesy Weinstein family)

We want to see you August 5th!

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.
