ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative disease. Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone dies from ALS.
July 4- Strike Out Lou Gehrig's Disease with the Fresno Grizzlies
Throughout July and the 2013 baseball season, The ALS Association Golden West Chapter is participating in and partnering with baseball teams to raise awareness and support for the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease.
This July 4, the Fresno Grizzlies will host a special evening to honor the 74th anniversary of Lou Gehrig's farewell to the New York Yankees and his fans. Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions, give our information about The Chapter and the National ALS registry, and to promote our Central Valley Walk to Defeat ALS.
The national "Strike Out Lou Gehrig's Disease" campaign is focused on promoting the ALS registry and spreading awareness about the increased risk to our military veterans. Grizzlies fans will be treated to a special camouflage baseball and a copy of Gehrig's speech to commemorate the evening. Our thanks to the Grizzlies and to the Fresno community for the efforts to make this such a special day!
