Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes someone loses their battle to this fatal disease.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (PRWEB) August 03, 2018
Anyone living in or passing through New York State has probably come across a radio or television spot for William Mattar. Their spots can be seen and heard along with other attorneys, car dealerships, furniture stores and other types of businesses one would normally not use often, but they advertise so their services are thought of when needed. New York car accident attorney William Mattar has focused on helping people for over 20 years and it's not only clients. They continually focus on supporting organizations doing good in the community throughout the year, year after year.
In August and September of 2018, ads with William Mattar supporting the ALS Walks in Western and Central New York are airing, and a page with information can be found on the firm's website, williammattar.com. Giving a voice to a cause is just a small part of the firm's presence in the community. Residents of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, or Binghamton, New York are encouraged to join their local ALS walk:
- Buffalo: Sunday, August 5th at Delaware Park
- Binghamton: Sunday August 19 at En-Joie Golf Course
- Rochester: Saturday, September 15 at Ontario Beach Park
