Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within 2 to 5 years of diagnosis. There is no cure for ALS.

On September 30, 2017, Whitefish United Methodist Church will join Dr. Erik Schroeder and Team Schroeder at the 2017 Walk to Defeat ALS in Missoula. Check-in for participants will be at 10am with the walk starting at 11am.
