A young adult from North Vancouver has been recognized for his efforts in making a difference in the lives of those living with ALS.
Riley Seger has been awarded the ALS Society of British Columbia’s Leader of Tomorrow Award for raising almost $9,000, alongside his uncle, as part of Team ALS BC in last year’s BMO Marathon.
Seger’s father, Mark, is living with ALS, according to a press release from the ALS Society of B.C.
“Although I have seen many negatives of this disease, I have also learned many lessons. I have learned the importance of inner strength and the power of positive thinking,” stated Seger, in the release.
The Leader of Tomorrow Award recognizes youth and young adults under the age of 25 who, individually or as part of group in the last calendar year, strove to make a difference through volunteer efforts for those living with ALS.
June is ALS Awareness Month in B.C.
