ALS Association cancels Friday breakfast

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - The ALS Association, a non-profit group devoted to fighting Lou Gehrig's disease, has cancelled a corporate breakfast event originally to be held at War Memorial Stadium Friday.

"With many of our speakers traveling in from out of town and the conditions worsening, we feel it is the responsible decision to not ask people to place themselves in any further danger," said NWA partner Kate Kressen in a statement. "We thank all of you for taking an interest in our very important cause and are unsure if a reschedule date is available.  We would love to set up meetings with all of you to further discuss our mission and the opportunities available for support."
