12011 Seventh Avenue
Come out for the 11th annual Peoples Drug Mart Walk for ALS! This exciting community events starts at 9 a.m. at Garry Point Park in Richmond, with the 5km Walk starting at 10:30 a.m.
Proceeds from the Walk go to the ALS Society of BC to fund research and to provide support for those living with ALS, a fatal neuromuscular disease that affects the person’s motor neurons that carry messages to muscles. When these muscles fail to receive messages, they lose strength, atrophy, and die, leaving the person immobilized.
