Colonial Housers Walking for a Cause

ALS-Walk-SignOn Saturday, June 27th, Colonial House friends and family tied their laces for a cause. A cause that we stand behind. It was a two mile trek that started at Memorial Park Band Shell at ten in the morning.

This walk raises money for a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis); a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells and the spinal cord. ALS is also known as ‘Lou Gehrig’s Disease’. The walk also brings hope to people living with ALS and is an opportunity to come together for something you care about. Plus, it is a tad bit warmer than dumping an ice bucket over your head.

Defeat ALS. You may still contribute to this year’s event by visiting www.ALSA.org, clicking on the ‘Walk to Defeat ALS’ and searching for the Rapid City event. Funds raised stay in our area to sustain care services and support research.
