LEEDS — Miss Leeds Area Outstanding Teen Emma Terry raised hundreds of dollars for the Alabama ALS Association.
Terry hosted the Drive Out ALS Cruise-in on Saturday, May 1, 2021. The event was held at the Outlet Shops of Grand River, in Leeds.
The fundraiser yielded $1,700 for the Alabama ALS Association. There was no judging of vehicles, just a fun event for a good cause.
The Alabama Chapter of the ALS Association was founded in 2004. The not-for-profit health organization provides patient programs, advocates on behalf of patients with government leaders, creates awareness of the disease, and funds research. In addition, the Chapter provides financial support to our statewide multidisciplinary ALS clinics and research facilities, enabling them to increase patient care.
Alongside the ALS Association National Office, the Alabama Chapter operates under a shared mission: to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
