Walkers Try to Stomp Out ALS


Hundreds put their feet to the street in Allentown on Saturday to defeat ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.
The walk was held at Coca-Cola Park, and all the money raised will go toward research and community-based patient service programs for those battling ALS.

It's a progressive motor neuron disease, which causes patients to eventually lose control of all voluntary muscles on their body.
