For the fourth year in a row, Abby Hammes, a Paralegal at O’Keeffe O’Brien Lyson Attorneys, has participated in the annual Walk to Defeat ALS. Abby’s mom lost her battle with ALS. Abby’s team name is “Team Noonnay”, which was a nickname given to her mom by family years ago.
The event, which took place Saturday, August 18th, attracted several hundred walkers who participated in the event’s 2.5 mile long walk which started at the main shelter of Fargo’s Lindenwood Park. Most were sponsored by friends, family and organizations to help raise money for ALS research.
The annual event is organized and sponsored by the Minnesota/South Dakota/North Dakota chapter of the ALS Association.
