Clay shoot raises money for ALS cure

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Hundreds of people attended a sporting clay shoot at the Flint Skeet and Trap Club for a good cause Saturday.

All the money raised will go toward research to find a cure for ALS or Lou Gehrig's Disease. It affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. Supporters from all over south Georgia were in town for the event. Susan Goff says her son, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2005, was the inspiration for the fundraiser.

"He said mama let's do a benefit for the Georgia ALS Association. That they had been so good to him and so that's when it started," said Susan Goff.

More than $175,000 has been raised for the Georgia ALS Association since 2005 from this benefit. You can contact Susan at 229-732-3827 or 229-321-0526 to find out how you can help.
