Dynetics Huntsville employees and their families joined community members in the Walk to Defeat ALS on October 14. They strolled alongside Dynetics co-founder Steve Gilbert, who was diagnosed in 2017 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's Disease. The event took place along the double-helix pathway on the Hudson Alpha campus in Cummings Research Park. The Dynetics team surpassed its fundraising goal, helping to make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease. Proceeds benefitted the Alabama Chapter of the ALS Association.
Dr. Gilbert succumbed to the disease in early December 2017.
