Greensboro, NC -- Hundreds of folks from the Triad laced up their shoes and walked for a good cause Saturday afternoon.
The Walk to Defeat ALS kicked off at Greensboro's Center City Park to raise money for those suffering from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
ALS, or "Lou Gehrig's disease," is a progressive motor neuron disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain, eventually making it impossible for the patient to move his or her muscles.
All the money raised from Saturday's event will go to North Carolina's Jim "Catfish" Hunter Chapter of the ALS Asssociation.
