Annual Blizzard Tour fundraiser aims to fight against ALS

Black Woods held their Blizzard Tour fundraiser to help fight against Lou Gehrig's disease commonly known as ALS.

The fundraiser is a three-day snowmobile ride for the A-L-S association. 


The tour's motto is "Never to Surrender."
The money raised will help people with A-L-S and their families here in the Northland. 


The fundraiser ended tonight with a dinner celebration hosted by Blackwoods at Cirrus Aircraft Saturday.
 

"The thing we hear at the ALS Association from families that are living with ALS is how grateful they are to this event. This event is really critical in our efforts to provide programs and services to families free of charge to families that are living with ALS throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota," said Executive Director, ALS Association; MN, ND, SD Chapter, Jennifer Hjelle.

Last year the event raised 1-million dollars.
