An estimated 4,000 people gathered on Saturday, September 14th, at the Georgia State Stadium for the Atlanta Walk to Defeat ALS, which continues to be the largest Walk to Defeat ALS in the country. Participation has a direct impact on people living with ALS and their families at the local level. Through education, support groups, access to care and advocacy, The ALS Association of Georgia is working to defeat ALS and provide hope to people living with ALS and their families. The funds raised through this event offer much-needed services to families living with ALS right here in Georgia that include support groups, financial assistance, loaned equipment, and in-home care, to name a few. Every dollar makes a difference!
Each year The ALS Association also puts on the Heroes Among Us Luncheon, which recognizes people living with ALS who have made “an indelible impact on The ALS Association and the community-at-large.” Those honored at the event inspire the ALS community as they have promoted awareness of Lou Gehrig’s Disease and have sought to improve the lives of those with ALS. Brownieland was honored to have the opportunity to produce a video for the ALS Association of Georgia honoring the 2016 Heroes Among Us Award Recipient, Becky Kidd, who passed away from ALS last November. We hope her story inspires you to support this worthy cause.
Join The ALS Association of Georgia for their upcoming event, Pints for Pals. Enjoy an afternoon at the Atlanta Brewing Company hosted by the ALS Association Georgia Chapter Young Professionals Group to raise money for families in Georgia living with ALS. It’s going to be a fun afternoon of craft beer, football, food, and fundraising for an important cause! All proceeds benefit the ALS Association of Georgia Chapter and families living with ALS. You can find more details HERE.
