On July 24th, our Johnstown ALS Community held their 16th annual Johnstown Walk to Defeat ALS®. Teams gathered from near and far to walk “their way,” and came together to raise over $82,000 to Unlock ALS!
Here’s how a few members of #OurALSCommunity spent their walk day…
Team Phyllis and Team Rick Husband joined forces to cut the first ribbon of the day at Crichton McCormick Park and walked in memory of Phyllis Connelly and Rick Husband.
Team For Pete’s Sake walked at Engh Field and honored Pete Duranko’s memory. Then they shared a sweet treat with an assortment of baked goods.
Team John got the whole gang together at the family homestead in Lilly to walk in memory of John Conrad. Led by their patriarch, John Francis Conrad, the family walked around their neighborhood and then headed back for a picnic style lunch and the best chocolate and banana gobs around!
Team ALStriders for Clara felt like a family reunion walking around Clara’s sister’s neighborhood in memory of Clara Pearce. Complete with cute dogs, sidewalk chalk, and great treats. This Polish family knew just how to Walk to Defeat ALS!
Over at Revloc Park, team Ronnie’s Rangers held their annual walk and basket raffle raising over $2,025 for their team. After walking, the team enjoyed an assortment of picnic foods and announced the winners of over 25 baskets!
