On Saturday March 28, 2015, AMS Vans proudly sponsored the Walk to Defeat ALS in Jacksonville, Florida held at Tinseltown and Seven Bridges Grille & Brewery. Over 2,000 walkers from 109 teams laced up and walked to help find a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as ALS and Lou Gehrig’s disease. This walk was the largest walk in the history of the Florida Chapter of ALS.
AMS Vans provided supplies for walkers to create personalized, hand-held signs to hold while walking the route. Walkers were thrilled that they could show others who they were supporting. One young boy, named Andrew, took much care as he colored his sign that read, “I walk for my Nanny.”
AMS Vans regularly participates in fundraising events for the ALS Association, the Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, the Spina Bifida Association, Fragile Kids, FOCUS, Houston Children’s Charity, and the Shepherd Center.
