BATON ROUGE, LA (WGMB) ALS is a disease commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

This condition affects a person's central nervous system, and can cause routine tasks like going up steps, getting out of a chair, or swallowing to be more and more difficult over time.

Many people at this event had a loved one or a friend who have been affected by ALS,so they decided to come and walk the three miles of River Road to show their support.
