Mott Foundation walks for president battling ALS

The Flint community honored the service of the Ruth Mott Foundation's president, Sarah Rios, Saturday.

People walked in honor of Rios who is diagnosed with ALS.

The 1.5 mile event through Applewood Estates raised money for the ALS Association Michigan chapter.

The Mott Foundation is happy to see the community giving back to someone who gave them so much.

"It is a tremendous honor and a privilege to be in the position to stand here today, to do this walk to have good legs to walk on and to be a part of this moment," said interim president, Christine Doby.
