Little Rock Personal Injury Lawyers Sponsoring The Walk to Defeat ALS
According to the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, there are currently more than 30,000 Americans who have been diagnosed with the condition known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)—or Lou Gehrig’s disease. To help raise awareness about this devastating disease, the Little Rock personal injury lawyers at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton are sponsoring the Arkansas Chapter of The ALS Association’s Walk to Defeat ALS 2015.
ALS is a degenerative neurological condition that slowly causes people to lose mobility in their bodies. There is no known cure for the disease, and treatment options are considered limited.
The team at Rainwater, Holt & Sexton became passionate about raising awareness about ALS after one of the firm’s founding partners, Stephen Holt, was diagnosed with the condition. Now, the firm is hoping to raise as much as $125,000 during the upcoming Walk to Defeat ALS so that the funds can be used to provide treatment options to someone suffering from the disease.
If you wish to participate in the walk, an article from Arkansas Online says the event will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 11, at the Clinton Presidential Center. If you are unable to make it to the event, you may also donate to our cause.
We are hopeful to see you at the upcoming event and encourage you to stay up to date on our latest philanthropic events by regularly visiting our community page.
