A local team is being formed for the 2006 Walk to D’Feet ALS which takes place in Grand Junction on Sunday, Oct. 1, at Lincoln Park.

ALS is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. ALS destroys a person’s motor neurons, which are responsible for relaying messages from the brain to the muscles, and a person eventually loses all their muscle functioning. There is no known cause or cure for this terminal disease.

Funds raised from this walk will support local patient services programs of the ALS Association, Rocky Mountain Chapter. Registration begins at 11 a.m. The 3K walk (around the track) starts at noon.

To become a team member, call Georgi Aibner at 625-6133.
