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.

Key Club takes a walk

Our Hollywood Key Club went to the 35th Annual Aids walk to help with the awareness of the disease known as aids, grouped with region 7 Key Clubs, we took the march by a small proportion.

When we arrived at t he location we were greeted by a stage that had people who are representatives of the aid walk as well as the sponsors. We were then given a brief history the annual event originated and started in the city of Los Angeles. And was started by one man who wanted to make a stand and have awareness of a disease that can affect us all.

When we stated the walk we we encourage by the staff and told us we were walking for a good cause and we are doing the right thing. It was a 3 mile walk around downtown Los Angeles which was greeted by several checkpoints giving all the walkers snacks and drinks to keep their walk going. By the end we were greeted by the volunteers with sprays of water at our face.

I would recommend to take time to spread awareness about any disease that should be known by all humans. Where a 3 mile walk can show more than words can ever do.
