Helps ALS

NEW GLOUCESTER – AtHome America, for the fourth year, contributed toward the recent ALS Walk 4 Life, a nationwide walk fundraiser designed to heighten the awareness of the nature of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease) and raise money for research.

Mike Wright, husband of AtHome America co-founder and CEO Becky Wright, was diagnosed with ALS on March 14, 2003. Since then, AtHome America, a direct sellers of home-decorating accents and furnishings, has supported those with ALS by creating Hope 4 Mike, a campaign of Wright family and friends and independent salespeople, also known as HomeStyle specialists.

“We were thrilled to have been able to contribute to a cause that means so much to so many people,” said Rebeca Norton, local HomeStyle Specialist. “We are proud to be a part of the overall efforts in the community to get sponsors and generous donations that has made a huge impact to everyone afflicted with ALS.”
