Kim received the Voice of Courage Award from The ALS Association on Saturday. The award is given to those who significantly contribute to expanding the public’s awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, said Jeff Snyder, the vice president of communications for The ALS Association. “Jinah Kim received the award for the comprehensive nature of the stories that she has done about ALS for over the years,” he said. Snyder said it is essential for the public to know about the disease and to increase funding for research. He added that only through research can this disease be figured out and a cure can be found.
