"ALS Across America" Kicks Off

http://www.prweb.com/releases/ALS/Across_America/prweb2314584.htm

Much is to be learned from all of these courageous people with ALS.


Steve Franks, 50, may have lost the ability to perform many of his tasks at his former job at Mainlands Golf Course in Pinellas Park, Fla., however, that has not stopped him from spearheading plans to transport 150 mannequins across the state in the "Piece by Piece Awareness Campaign." Each mannequin represents a person who ALS has affected and whose body has literally been stolen "piece by piece." "The mission Steve is embarking on this year will be his biggest attempt to focus the public's attention on this devastating disease," said Kamden Kuhn, public relations coordinator for The Association's Florida Chapter.
