ALS Central Florida Walk participants got a special surprise from Orlando-based face painter Miss Harriet. Miss Harriet developed a special face painting design in the form of the ALS Association logo for the organization’s signature event.
Saturday’s Walk to Defeat ALS at Lake Eola raised a record $230,000 and had nearly 1,000 participants.
Last year, these events raised more than $1 million around the state of Florida.
Kevin James, The “King of Queens,” was also on-hand at Saturday’s Walk to Defeat ALS at Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando. James was in town to support his cousin, Chris Knipfing, who has ALS.
About the ALS Central Florida Walk
More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.
