Recently, Driver SPG employees, friends, and family members participated in the Orange County Walk to Defeat ALS. Each year, the ALS Association of Orange County puts on the 5K walk to raise awareness about ALS. The walk is also the ALS Association’s biggest fundraising event of the year, collecting donations to support ALS research and local individuals living with the disease.
It was a hot November morning at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine and this year’s walk was the biggest in the Orange County Chapter’s history. Jared Mullins, the Executive Director of the ALS Association, gave a brief welcome and an update on the latest ALS research before kicking off the walk. The Driver SPG team was able to visit with all four of the families we have completed renovations for this year and it was great catching up with them. Overall, the event was a huge success and raised $290,000 to continue the fight to find a cure for ALS. Thank you to everyone who participated and donated to our team!
