Oakville Eye Care ALS BBQ Great Success
Oakville, Saturday, June 4th, 2016 – Oakville Eye Care hosted their 3rd BBQ fundraiser in support of ALS Canada. Together with the Oakville Leo Club and all our community residents who came out to support us, in helping make it a great success, Oakville Eye Care has raised over $700 so far. All proceeds will go directly to ALS.
Giving back to the community is very important to Oakville Eye Care. The doctors and staff every year select a charity close to their hearts. This year they are proud to be supporting ALS Canada through weekly bake sales, silent auction, ALS BBQ, and capping it off by participating in the annual ALS Walk in Hamilton. They invite all residents to come join them on Saturday, June 18th for the walk.
ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease), is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed. It results in progressive weakness and wasting of skeletal muscles, paralysis and death, generally two to five years after diagnosis. ALS Canada identifies and initiates excellent peer-reviewed research, and provides services and support to all patients and families in Ontario. For more information please visit www.als.ca.
