Mission Statement

Description

What is ALS?

ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system. ALS results in the progressive weakness of voluntary muscles which often leads to total paralysis. There is no known cause or cure for ALS. People with ALS typically live between two and five years after being diagnosed.

I think this is a rear place for kids my age to find a place to volunteer and help out their community. I know lots kids that will use this opportunity very well to better the lives of other people and better their lives as well.

I had a lot of fun at the ALS walk and there was a lot of nice people there. It might have been cold, but it was fun to see how many people actually showed up for the event to support the organization.
