NYSTEC Participates in Walk from Home Event to Defeat ALS

October 18, 2020.  This year’s annual Walk Across the Hudson to Defeat ALS was conducted from home as teams across the Hudson Valley set out on their own to participate and contribute to this noble cause.  NYSTEC’s participation actually materialized in the Northern NJ town of Haworth, about five miles west of the Hudson River.  NYSTEC’s contribution reached almost $600.00 to support people in the Hudson Valley community with ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure.

Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.

Despite the cancellation of this year’s main event at the Walkway Over the Hudson State Historic Park near Poughkeepsie, NY, NYSTEC’s A Team and many others were still able to walk and make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS.

NYSTEC Volunteer Effort for Capital Roots

October 2, 2020. Earlier this fall, volunteers from NYSTEC’s HMT practice helped out Capital Roots at the Corliss Park Community Garden in Troy, NY.  The team weeded and cleared space so the garden can host additional plots in the future. Capital Roots is a not-for-profit that works to reduce the impact of poor nutrition on public health in New York’s Capital Region.

It was great to get together, get outside, and help make a difference!
