For our October Volunteer Project, the Brownieland Team participated in the Atlanta Walk to Defeat ALS for our fourth year in a row! This year was a little different, as the walk was a virtual event. However, that did not deter our efforts to honor, celebrate, and remember those affected by ALS. Before the walk began, we enjoyed the virtual Opening Ceremonies featuring DJ Gary along with special messages from the ALS Association of Georgia staff and team captains. ALS Association of Georgia’s Executive Director, Sarah Embro talks about the 2020 Atlanta Walk to Defeat ALS in this Brownieland Pictures guest blog post. Every year, the Brownieland Team is honored to walk in support of the ALS Association’s vision – to one day create a world without ALS. This year, we may have walked separately, but we are still #ALSinThisTogether!
The ALS Association is the only national nonprofit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front.
