The ALS Society of Manitoba is hosting their annual Walk for ALS later this month.
The walk will be held on June 19th, and is the organization’s major fundraiser to help fund their support programs and important research to help find the cause and a cure for the neuro-muscular disease.
Diana Rasmussen, the executive director of the ALS Society of Manitoba, says there are an estimated three thousand Canadians living with ALS, with four hundred people in Manitoba. Visit alsmb.ca for more information.
