On May 11 and 12, volunteers wearing yellow aprons and holding collection canisters will be stationed in front of stores throughout Wauconda and Lake Zurich as part of the Les Turner ALS Foundation's Tag Days drives. Island Lake resident Trudi Falk is spearheading this effort in honor of her friend Tim Paust, 50, of Grayslake, who is living with ALS (commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease). A true grass-roots campaign, Tag Days helps increase awareness of ALS and raises funds to support medical research, patient services and educational activities. The Tag Days drive is one of nearly 30 community drives in the Chicago area. Volunteers, who typically commit to a two-hour shift, will be stationed at highly-visible locations, such as the Walmart in Lake Zurich and at numerous intersections in Wauconda.
