“Pocket Larry” travels for ALS awareness

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Last year, a “Ice Bucket Challenge” brought recognition and millions of dollars of donations to ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
This year, “Pocket Larry” is holding over.
Larry Tyler, who has ALS and who was a impulse for “Pocket Larry,” walks as a group captain during this year’s St. Louis Walk to Defeat ALS.
The idea of this year`s travel is to boost recognition of ALS and lift some-more than $455,000 for internal studious programs in eastern Missouri and executive and southern Illinois. Last year’s travel lifted some-more than $425,000 with scarcely 4,000 walkers.
The judgment of “Pocket Larry” resembles “Flat Stanley.” “Pocket Larry” has been to over 68 cities and all countries opposite a world, including Guatemala, Scotland, and Italy.
The travel is this Saturday in Forest Park. More information is accessible on a ALS Walk website. If we can't participate, take “Pocket Larry” on summer vacation with we and widespread a word about ALS awareness.
