On Saturday, October 25, 2014, the MaSNA Board of Directors came together from Worcester State University, Boston College, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, and University of Massachusetts at Lowell to defeat ALS. It was a wonderful experience to stand side by side participants who know people directly affected by ALS at the annual "Walk to Defeat ALS." We had a good time enjoying the nice Fall weather at the DCR's Carson Beach. We encourage nursing students to get involved in their communities through walks and events. As nursing students, it is important to make an impact in our surrounding communities and schools.
Although #icebucketchallenge brought a lot of awareness to ALS this summer, the ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter came together to help bring more awareness to ALS. The goal was to raise $400,000 to support ALS research and sustain the chapter in Massachusetts for the next year.
