Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon Team Up for ALS Walk
Jennifer Garner joined pals Reese Witherspoon, Renee Zellweger, and Courteney Cox at an amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) charity walk on Sunday in support of publicist pal Nanci Ryder. Witherspoon and Zellweger, who are both long time clients and friends of Ryder, have made it an annual tradition to participate in the two-mile long Walk to Defeat ALS in downtown Los Angeles since 2014, when Ryder was diagnosed with the progressive neuro-degenerative disease.
Former Friends star Cox joined in the activity last year, and over the weekend, Garner became another member of Ryder’s walking team as the Hollywood stars joined forces to raise funds for ALS research. All of the stars wore t-shirts with “Team Nanci” printed across the chest, and Witherspoon documented the day on Instagram. “Here I am with Renee. What are we doing?” she asks the Bridget Jones’s Baby star, who replies, “ALS Walk for ALS, raising some money!”
Proceeds from the event will be donated to the ALS Association, an organization dedicated to finding a treatment and cure for the illness.
