This week on Helping Hand we’re learning about ALS -- amyotrophic lateral sclerosis also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease -- and ALS Research. Ahead of the upcoming Hawai‘i Walk to Defeat ALS September 17, and during this month they’re seeking support, HPR ATC Host Dave Lawrence welcomes back Fred Fisher, President and CEO, the ALS Association Golden West Chapter.

Helping Hand is a weekly feature on HPR1 stations every Friday at 5:30 and archived online here, where each Helping Hand segment done since the feature started in 2013 can be heard. Each week, Helping Hand puts the spotlight on an organization, topic or event that offers assistance to the disabled and others among the most vulnerable.
