The seventh A.L.S. Fundraiser is dedicated to North Country native and U.S. Army Veteran, David Pearce, who was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Proceeds generated will be disbursed to assist Mr. Pearce with medical, travel and household expenses incurred as the disease progresses. A portion of the proceeds will also be disbursed to the local organization, A.L.S. Raising Hope Foundation. This annual fundraiser is the only annual event in the North Country to financially assist area residents diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease while raising continued awareness.
