The 13th Annual Walk of Hope for ALS took place this morning from the town of Wakefield, MA, following a scenic 3.5 mile route that runs parallel along the shore of Lake Quannapowit.
The walk begins at 11:00 am after a release of white doves, and there are many fun family friendly activities taking place throughout the day. A highlight of the event this year was the Group Ice Bucket Challenge that was held with more than 500 people joining in!
The walk is an event that raises funds that will directly benefit ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) research at the Cecil B. Day Neuromuscular Lab at the UMass Medical Center in Worcester. Thank you to all participants!
