The summer of 2017 started and ended strong for ALS Double Play. We held our second annual Intentional Walk for ALS at the Markham Civic Centre on Saturday, June 10. It was another beautiful day, attended by a couple hundred of our friends. We walked a round around a sign lined route at the Civic Centre - ensuring that people noticed the crowd and the cause! From July 14 to 16 we were pleased to participate in Power Unit Youth Organization's annual Night It Up night market.
Saturday August 9, was one hot Saturday afternoon. We were strong in numbers, 50 family, friends and supporters in our purple ALS Double Play shirts. We cheered on our Toronto Blue Jays, but to no avail. The post-All Star streak came to a halt. But we were undeterred. Together we turned heads with our purple tees. Together we made it on the JumboTron! Together we made it on TV. Together, just by attending the game as a group, we raised awareness of ALS. Thank you to everyone
