Ohio Epsilon (Akron) Volunteers at Four ALS Walks



Working to defeat ALS is very important to the Ohio Epsilon Chapter at the University of Akron. As the primary cause that the chapter supports, the brothers have become increasing passionate about Lou Gehrig’s disease over the years. This fall, the brothers of Ohio Epsilon attended The ALS Association’s Walk to Defeat ALS in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Youngstown and their home city of Akron.

The first of these walks was held in Pittsburgh. Nineteen Ohio Epsilon brothers traveled to Pittsburgh prior to the walk in order to help setup. In addition to the Pittsburgh Walk, the setup was something Ohio Epsilon helped with in each city. The chapter also assisted with the tear-down of each event. The chapter’s greatest turnout was the Walk held in their home city of Akron, Ohio. Twenty-nine brothers volunteered at this event as they helped coordinate, setup, lead the walk and clean. The brothers of Ohio Epsilon could not think of a better way to start the school year than by working with The ALS Association!
