This Week's Featured Walker:

Why I Walk Wednesday - Bob Hicks
Bob Hicks, person living with ALS

When asked why he walked, Bob said “The fact that I’m a Person with ALS (PALS). Who better to tell the story? When I was first diagnosed, I thought “Walk to Defeat ALS? No way, when I can barely walk!” That was when I could still walk a little bit. The more I thought about participating, the more I realized there was a lot I could do, especially as a member of a team. When I was an infantry company commander in Vietnam, I seldom was in front. My most powerful weapon was my radio, the internet is now.
I don’t have to walk to use it.”

Thanks for sharing your story with us, Bob!
