Publicist Nanci Ryder’s “Team Nanci” once again participated in the annual LA County Walk to Defeat ALS, on Sunday, October 18, 2015 at Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
After being diagnosed with ALS last year, Nanci bravely decided to share her battle with the public to raise awareness and support for the ALS community. She and her many friends participated in the 13th Annual LA County Walk to Defeat ALS, hosted by the ALS Association Golden West Chapter, as “Team Nanci” in custom Vera Wang Collection T-Shirts designed and donated by Vera Wang.
The 1.6 mile walk was open to the public, and all funds raised support the mission-critical priorities of The ALS Association Golden West Chapter in care services, public policy, and research.
Among those who took part in support of Team Nanci were Justine Bateman, Courteney Cox, Angie Harmon, Jeffrey Katzenberg, Bryan Lourd, Reese Witherspoon, Lawrence Zarian, Renee Zellweger, Daphne Zuniga and more. Additional “Walk to Defeat ALS” attendees included Miley Cyrus, Amy Paffrath, Mari Winsor and more.
