The 15th annual Walk n’ Roll for ALS will be held at Emerson Park in Midland Sunday, Oct. 4, and they are in need of volunteers. ALS is a progressive, neuromuscular disease with no known cause or cure. The Walk n’ Roll will help raise money towards ALS research to hopefully discover more about the disease.
“It’s such an amazing event,” senior Sunny Kim, the coordinator for the event, said. “Mrs. Bushey is always there and we all want to support her. This will be the first year that Jonathon [Bushey] won’t be there so that’s a little hard, but we’re doing this in honor of him.”
According to Kim, who has been helping out with this event for the past two years, there are many things students can do to help out.
“They can either work registration or help set up the actual event,” Kim said. “They can also walk in the actual walk and raise money while doing it. The last thing would be to help take down the event.”
Volunteer shifts vary from 11 am to 4 pm. Anyone interested in learning more about the event, can visit the ALS of Michigan website or contact them at (800)-882-5764.
