My dear friend Lauren lost her husband to ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. This disease takes an extreme toll on both the afflicted and the caregiver as it is often expensive to provide care for an individual with ALS and emotionally straining. This cause has also suffered from lack of support and recognition, until this recent ice bucket challenge. But we're runners/walkers, not ice bucket dumpers, so let's do this and help out a much needed cause. Here's the link for information and registration:
The post race event will take place at Old Warren Marina located at the race finish along the waterfront. At the post race event awards will be given to the winners and runners will be able to get free Guinness, Blount's Clam Chowda, review race results, enjoy some food, and live music.
