LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 7, 2005) — S&S Tire this month will raise money and awareness for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) or Lou Gehrig's disease.
In September, S&S Tire customers can buy a “foot” decal bearing the ALS logo for a $1 donation. The decals will be on display at S&S Tire's 12 outlets in Kentucky. All money up to $1,200 will be matched by the dealership and donated to the “Walk to D'Feet” ALS event Oct. 2.
The walk is part of a national effort in support of local patient services and outreach to the estimated 300 Kentucky residents living with ALS. S&S Tire representatives also will participate in the walk, in honor of employee Bill Smith and his wife Mary Lou, who was recently diagnosed with ALS.
