Louis Mykoff finishes Gleason run
NEW ORLEANS - Louis Mykoff began his journey on the Mississippi River levee right outside downtown Baton Rouge. He crossed the finish line Monday, fittingly, at the Steve Gleason "Rebirth" statue right outside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Mykoff's goal was to simply bring attention, and possibly donations, to finding a cure for ALS(also commonly known at Lou Gehrig's disease).
What he didn't know was how much support he would gain along the way.
The Baton Rouge native and LSU graduate raised $11,400 for Team Gleason - surpassing his goal of $10,000.
