ALS Coin Drive Success

By Daniel D.

Congratulations to the PJs for all their all the hard work and dedication, and many thanks to the generosity of the STA community! Recently, the PJs had a coin drive in support of ALS, and managed to raise an impressive $800.00, which was more than was anticipated.

ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a disease that causes the death of special brain cells, called neurons, whose purpose is to control the movement of certain muscles. In some cases, it is genetic, and in others, the cause is unknown. It was famous for infecting Lou Gehrig, a baseball player, in 1939, and Stephen Hawking, an author and scientist, in 1963. The ice bucket challenge, which became popular in 2014, was to raise awareness for ALS.

The PJs thank everyone who participated in this event.
