The ALS Association Golden West Chapter to Honor Superior Mobility with the 2019 Community Champion Award at the 17th Annual Ventura-Santa Barbara County Walk to Defeat ALS® on Sunday, October 6, 2019

8/28/2019 –Agoura Hills, CA

The ALS Association Golden West Chapter proudly announces Superior Mobility as the 2019 Community Champion Honoree for the 17th Annual Ventura-Santa Barbara County Walk to Defeat ALS®. The 2 mile walk will start and finish on Sunday, October 6, at Plaza Park in the heart of Downtown Ventura and is open to the public. All funds raised support the mission priorities of the Golden West Chapter in care services, public policy, and research.

Superior Mobility, which has been a partner of The Golden West Chapter since 2001, is a family-owned and operated company, established in 1979, which focuses on providing the best complex rehab equipment with a client centered approach. The company will receive the Walk Community Champion Award for its commitment to philanthropy of time and resources in support of the ALS community in Ventura, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, the Inland Empire, Orange, San Luis Obispo and parts of Kern County; and to the global search for effective treatments and cures.  

Superior Mobility has been a proud sponsor of multiple events throughout the Golden West Chapter’s portfolio of events. Per Sabrina Beals, Community Outreach Liaison, at Superior Mobility, “Our first participation with the ALS Association Walk to Defeat ALS was in 2008 at the Ventura-SB Walk. We knew that partnering with the ALS Association was more than just supporting the needs of others- it was supporting the cause, connecting face to face with families and raising awareness in every way possible by furthering support to one day soon live in a world without ALS.”  The Ventura-SB Walk holds a special meaning for Sabrina, as it’s where she met her husband, Kevin Beals. “This particular walk holds such as special place in all our hearts as our very first together- not just as a company, but as a family united.”

“The Community Champion award is such a humbling honor we hold dear to our hearts. We see every day as an opportunity to further the vision and mission of the ALS Association as well as impact the lives of families with care, compassion and mobility. We will never give up on this mission!”

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal, neurodegenerative disease that attacks nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. ALS does not discriminate -- women and men of all ages and backgrounds are at risk, though for unknown reasons veterans are diagnosed with ALS twice as often as civilians.  People with ALS lose their ability to move, speak, swallow and eventually to breathe, while all five senses continue to function normally.
