4th Annual TopGolf fights against ALS

Join The NFL alumni Carolina Chapter in fighting ALS

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The NFL alumni chapter Charlotte is partnering with Walbridge & Sunbelt Rentals in the fight against ALS also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. NFL alumni Carolina President Adrian Murrell joined Charlotte Today to talk more about it. 

ALS is a type of motor neuron disease. As motor neurons degenerate and die, they stop sending messages to the muscles, which causes the muscles to weaken, start to twitch (fasciculations), and waste away (atrophy). Eventually, the brain loses its ability to initiate and control voluntary movements.

“We all know players who have been stricken with this disease. People such as receiver Dwight Clark or safety William White have succumb to this disease. This is our 4th annual event that we are raising money in the fight against ALSA” says Murrell. The event is May 31st at Top Golf, a great venue from 6-9pm. Come and join the fun and the NFL alumni Carolina Chapter as they fight against ALS. For more information visit Topgolf.ALSNC.ORG
