Hundreds of people laced up their shoes Sunday to Walk to D'Feet ALS. The 3rd Annual Walk was held at Buddy Holly Park.
ALS is more commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease. The disease causes nerve cells to die and muscles to gradually waste away. More than 400 people supported Sunday's walk.
"The Lubbock community has really been great. They've opened up their arms to us. We've got great sponsors and a lot of great people out here who are walking and working hard to make sure that we find a cure for this disease," said Christian Stubbs, Executive Director of ALS, North Texas Chapter.
Proceeds from the walk benefit local patient programs and services as well as ALS research.
