What’s Happening Today – August 27, 2019
Today on DelmarvaLife –
ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal disease with no cure. Bill O’Brien, the chair of the Rehoboth Beach Walk to Defeat ALS, was inspired to fight for a cure after losing several friends to the disease. We hear more about his passion toward raising money for the ALS Association and how you can help with the Rehoboth Beach Walk to Defeat ALS.
Something as simple as a house serves as the foundation of a road to recovery for women battling addiction. The “Home of Hope” in Bridgeville is changing and transforming women’s lives. We hear more about the mission of the program and what progress has been made since opening in November.
The “Home of Hope” in Bridgeville is part of a larger group, “Adult and Teen Challenge Delaware.” On Thursday, September 12th, Union United Methodist Church in Bridgeville is holding a golf tournament to raise money for Home of Hope. It’s called “Driving Home Hope.” Reverend James Penuel joins us to talk about the tournament and what’s new for the third year of the event.
Smoke detectors save lives, but not everyone has them in their home. Paul Eichler with the Delaware Fire Sprinkler Coalition talks about the simple devices as well as fire sprinklers, how they work, and how they can make the difference between life and death in a fire.
