Welcome to our ALS Walk Page!!
Thank you for helping us reach our Walk to Defeat ALS fundraising goal! This is our family's 5th year to walk. The Walk to Defeat ALS raises funds to support those affected by ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure. We started walking in 2019 when Daddy was diagnosed with ALS.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. Many of you know, Dad's experience with this disease was very short. He lived only 5 months with ALS, before it took his life. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
That's why we walk. To change the statistics. To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. To ensure that no one ever hears the words: "You have ALS" again.
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families.
But we can't stop now. The key to a cure begins with all of us.
Please consider walking with us or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
I Made a Difference!
