6th Annual Walk to D’feet ALS
October 23, 2005 – The DC/MD/VA Chapter of the ALS Association is sponsoring this area’s fifth annual Walk to D’feet ALS at the Constitution Gardens (on the National Mall, next to the WWII Memorial) at 10 AM on Sunday, October 23rd, 2005. Join our team!
The ALS Association is the only national not-for-profit voluntary health organization whose sole mission is to find a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) and to improve the lives of those living with ALS. Baseball great Lou Gehrig of the New York Yankees was a member of Phi Delta Theta from Columbia University and is the primary reason our fraternity’s partnership with the ALS Association to fight for a cure.
The DC/MD/VA Chapter of the ALS Association was founded in 1991 by a group of dedicated volunteers to respond to the critical needs of people with ALS and is the primary resource for patient services in DC, Maryland and Northern Virginia.
Due to the overwhelming success from 2004, the chapter will sponsor five more walks this year:
– Hagerstown, MD – October 2, 2005
– Baltimore, MD – October 9, 2005
– Richmond, VA – October 15, 2005
– Chesapeake, VA – October 22, 2005
