Things To Do
Today on AM 1540 WADK with What'sUpNewp
ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, has long been viewed as among the most devastating conditions for both the afflicted and his or her family. Frank Prosnitz and Ryan Belmore have dedicated their shows today to raising awareness about the disease.
The Open Forum (12 pm to 1 pm):  Mary Murphy and Mary Frances Vesey, both of whom lost husbands to ALS, witnessing the courage, strength, bravery and determination of their husbands, and also demonstrating that same courage, strength, bravery and determination as caregivers for those they cherished. Both will join WUN’s Frank Prosnitz today in advance of an Evening of Hope, a major event of the R.I. ALS Chapter, scheduled for June 22. 
What'sUpNewp Radio Edition (1 pm to 2 pm): Tim Burke, a Newport Pedicabber, was among several locals who last week participated in the Tri-State Trek, The Ride To End ALS. Burke will join Ryan today.
We’ll also be joined by Ragged Island Brewing Company, who has made a beer to support the foundation, Ales For ALS.
Have a great day, we’ll see you out there!
