Miley Cyrus, Reese Witherspoon And More Celebrities Walk To Defeat ALS (PHOTOS)
Miley Cyrus, Reese Witherspoon, Courteney Cox and Renee Zellweger were among the celebrities who participated on Sunday in the 13th annual Los Angeles County Walk to Defeat ALS. See a photo gallery below!
More than 2,000 people attended the event, which helps to both spread awareness about the disease, as well as to raise funds for research that could help find a cure. ALS is a deadly illness that affects a person’s nervous system, resulting in one’s inability to control their muscles.
Cyrus attended the 1.6-mile walk at L.A.’s Exposition Park in support of celebrity Pilates instructor Mari Winsor, who is battling the disease. Prior to the walk, the pop star got up on stage and danced along with a group of other participants to Pharrell’s hit song “Happy.”
Meanwhile, actresses Witherspoon, Cox and Zellweger walked in honor of legendary Hollywood publicist and Gossip Cop pal Nanci Ryder, who was diagnosed with ALS last year. Witherspoon was accompanied by her daughter Ava Phillippe and husband Jim Toth, while Cox had daughter Coco Arquette in tow, and Zellweger was joined by musician boyfriend Doyle Bramhall. Additional celebrities who attended the fundraising event included Angie Harmon, Justine Bateman, Daphne Zuniga and Jeffrey Katzenberg.
