All the money raised from Sunday's walk will go to helping those Iowans. Helping a family member with ALS can cost up to $200,000 per year.
"We provide life-giving care, basically, while they're still living with the disease, give them a good quality of life," said Tanner Hockensmith, Executive Director of the Iowa Chapter of the ALS Association. "We're able to provide that through the money we raise here at the walk."
So far, the Cedar Rapids walk has raised more $40,000 and they'll be collecting donations through the end of January.
The ALS Association hopes the walk will raise $50,000.
