Oh no, it's not just another walk this year. Along with supporting The ALS Association we are making a day of it. Not a "normal" day, my kind of day. We will be tailgating and then heading somewhere for beer and fun. Get yourself ready to walk, raise money, make noise and have some fun this year! (All levels of questionable behavior are encouraged and expected.)
