ADA - One in 50,000 individuals is afflicted with Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a non-curable (as of now) disease affecting the nervous system and muscles. Amazingly, in this area the number is closer to one in 7,000!
Perhaps most people know of this disease by the name "Lou Gehrig's Disease", named after the famed New York Yankee baseball player.
A challenge is going out to set the Ohio Athletic Conference Baseball Attendance record.
On April 20, the Ohio Northern University Polar Bears plays a home double-header against Baldwin-Wallace. The Christian Pharmacy Fellowship is working with "Play Hardball Against ALS" to raise funds to support those with ALS and to support continued research.
The games are at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. at ONU Wander Field home of the ONU Baseball Team. They are asking for a $1 donation for entry.
During the 1:00 game, foul balls out of the field of play can be kept as a souvenir!
Come on out and enjoy some baseball and help support PHAALS.
