CharityPong, happening from 5pm – 9pm October 22nd at DeveloperTown is a great way for both corporate teams and individuals to have fun and raise money for the ALS Association Indiana Chapter.
Molly Borter, CharityPong Co-Chairman and Cindy Wise, Executive Director, ALS Association Indiana Chapter are thrilled with the recent attention ALS has gotten with with Ice Bucket Challenge and are carrying that momentum into their event! Not the ice or the water just the momentum!
So what is ALS? Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as “Lou Gehrig’s disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually lead to their death. ALS can strike anyone, and the average person lives 2-5 years after being diagnosed. Currently, there is very little known on causes and no treatment or cure.
CharityPong is Wednesday Oct 22, doors open at 4:30 and tourney starts at 5 at DeveloperTown in Broad Ripple. You can sign up to attend the event or play in the tourney! No mad ping pong skills required! Can specify pro or amateur to be teamed up for first round accordingly.
