ALS Beat Feet

Saturday, November 9, 2019

Lucy C. Laney High School

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as "Lou Gehrig's disease," currently affects as many as 30,000 Americans, with an average of 15 people newly diagnosed daily. ALS has no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries. It is a progressive disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. With ALS, those nerve cells begin to die, leading to muscle weakness, paralysis, and worsening respiratory functions. This will eventually lead to their death and usually within five years from their initial symptoms.  As the disease progresses, it will  affect all activities of daily living, including eating, dressing, writing, walking, breathing and talking. ALS is a relentless disease and there is no known cause or cure.

This year, the ALS Clinic at Augusta University Neuroscience Center is hosting the BEAT FEET for ALS event on September 28th at the Augusta Riverwalk. The walk is up to three miles and will include music, snacks, and fun activities for the whole family. To show support, ALS Walk T-shirts are worn; however, many teams create custom T-shirts to show their enthusiasm and team pride.

 

To lead the fight to cure and treat ALS by making cutting-edge research available, and to encourage and empower People with ALS (PALS) and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care, needed resources, and support as they battle this disease.
