The 4th Annual Rising Sun-Ohio County Walk for ALS, sponsored by the Rising Sun Lion's Club was a great success!
It was started by Clayton Lamkin , a member of
the lions Club, in honor of Steve Whitham. Steve was a friend of
and he wanted to do something for him. The Lions Club furnished
the water bottles , bananas, coffee and donuts, along with
balloons. It cost $20 to register and you got a shirt with all of
the names of ALS victims of this disease from the county.
Approximately 100 people came out and a total
of $5611.45 was raised. The Lion's Club will send the check to the ALS
of Indiana in a few weeks as donations are still coming in. The
t-shirts had the names of Steve Whitham, Beryl Whitham, Coleen
Rose DeCamp, Jim Baker, Vic McPeek, Brian Welch, Gary Falkenbury,
and this year reflected two new names, Harold Hendrix and
Anthony Fryman, Greg Landy and Richard Fryman
flew in from Florida to attend; Kada Campbell, granddaughter of Steve
raised $180 selling candy bars at her middle school during the
year. The walk has grown each year and we pray the funding
we are able to provide will help to fund a cure soon. Thanks to
all who came out - the family and friends of each person affected
by this horrible disease appreciate your support.
