The ALS Association North Carolina is keeping up that same momentum years later by raising money and awareness for this disease.
The organizers said around 1,000 people came out for the walk. Walkers took a two-mile loop around UNCW and the goal was to raise $130,000.
The ALS Association is crediting money raised through the Ice Bucket Challenge for the discovery of a gene they say is among the most common that contribute to the progressive disease.
Saturday's wet weather did not stop walkers from participating in the 13th Annual Walk to Defeat ALS in Wilmington.
