ATLANTA, GA (WTVM) – Wednesday organizers for the Run for Jeremy presented a check to the Emory ALS Center in Atlanta, GA

The run raised more than $14,000. Our very own, Laura Anne Sills was one of the organizers for the run.

The first-ever 5K Run for Jeremy was held in October at Harris County High School in Hamilton, GA.

The ALS Center provides clinical services for those with ALS and works to find cures.

The run honored Jeremy Williams, who has been diagnosed with ALS also known at Lou Gehrig's Disease.  Organizers plan to make the run an annual event.

Williams and his family were recently honored on ABC's Extreme Makeover.
