Ministry Leader: April Salisbury

Several years ago St. Stephen’s UMC lost a beloved member to a dreadful disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Since then several of our members have participated in the annual Albuquerque Walk to Defeat ALS. It is an annual fundraising event that raises funds to benefit people with ALS and helps pay for research on developing a cure.

The event takes place in September each year. This year the event will take place on Sunday, September 29, 2019.

For more information contact April Salisbury at or 505 306-9924.

To register for the ALS walk, visit the ALS Association, New Mexico chapter website and click the “I will walk” button or call 323-6348.
