Stoneham Ford and Stoneham Bank were blessed to participate in the Angel Fund’s 15th Annual Walk of Hope for ALS on Saturday, September 10, 2016. Through the event, Alan’s A Team was able to raise $18,000, which will go towards research for finding a cure to ALS.
The year’s event was held at Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, MA. Many participants walked at 11:00 AM in memory of Alan Melkonian.
While funds were raised through this event, others were made online at the Angel Fund ALS Research website or sent their donations directly to the organization located in Wakefield.
ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a progressive neurological disease that causes muscle weakness and gradually impacts on the functioning of the body. It is also referred to a motor neuron disease or Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the famous baseball player who had the condition.
