On Wednesday, September 3, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. a group will gather at the Cowboy Trail picnic area behind to help raise awareness of ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. There will be a short presentation and a balloon send off to honor and remember those that have suffered with or now suffer with ALS. They will then walk (for those that want to) approximately one mile. There will also be a lemonade stand/bake sale. There will also be a free will donation bucket which all proceeds will go to the Tri-City ALS Walk that Kathy Colburn will be attending on September 6th. All proceeds that go to the Tri-City ALS go to help purchase equipment, etc. that are rented or given to patients that suffer with ALS.
