Our Key Club went to the LA County Walk to Defeat ALS. ALS is known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, which is a disease that affects one nerve cells within the brain and in the spinal cord. Which in then affects throughout the body, where they have two to five year life span. The event was held at exposition park by USC the event had many teams and participants. The teams represented people who they lost to ALS.
When volunteering as a route cheerleader I was sadden by the amount of people there were. To spread aware news and volunteering in the event all they can say was thank you, although all I did was guide them to the correct direction. With this I say we all should as little we can to make a difference in the world one step at a time.
