The 13th Annual
Walk of Hope for ALS begins and ends on Wakefield’s lower Common,
on the shores of beautiful Lake Quannapowitt. The 3.5-mile level
route runs parallel to the lake, providing a picturesque walk for walkers of all ages and abilities.
Take part in the walk, raise money through pledges and donations, and
participate in activities on the Common! Refreshments will be available
for all walkers at the conclusion of the walk.
This family-friendly event raises funds that directly benefit ALS (Lou
Gehrig’s Disease) research at the Cecil B. Day Neuromuscular Lab at
the UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
We encourage you to join in this celebration of hope by walking, and
raising money, for those who are living with ALS, or in memory of
those who are no longer with us.
For more information call 781-245-7070.
The Angel Fund’s support of ALS research at the Day Lab at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, under the direction of Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. has helped fund a critical ALS breakthrough. The gene EphA4 is the center of the research that was discovered by a Belgium doctor, Dr Brown and other researchers. Dr Brown stated that suppressing EphA4 may be a new way to treat ALS.
