Washing Cars for ALS

It was super hot – and wet and sudsy – last week as Lenny Dale’s 7th grade advisory class held a car wash for Ann Arbor Active Against ALS.  The soaping-rinsing-wiping crew had help from several other middle schoolers, and when they laid down their hoses the group had raised over $470.

Ann Arbor Active Against ALS is a local non-profit that raises funds for ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease) research.  100% of the money Emerson raised will be donated to research labs at the end of this month.  There is no effective treatment or cure for ALS, and awareness and funds for research are critical.
