New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A Walk to End ALS was held today at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven where over 1,000 people participated Sunday.

People came out wearing their orange, determined to raise money to find a cure.

Money raised at the walk goes to help families impacted through support services, funding research, and to help shape public policy by raising awareness of the need.

One organizer told News 8, “We’re so grateful for the people who came out here this morning to support us in this event who share our vision of a world without ALS.”
