Hi to all of our friends and family!
Thank you for helping us reach our Walk to Defeat ALS® fundraising goal! This is an exciting opportunity for us to work together to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
This is the 5th year that Jake, Meagan and I will be participating in the ALS walk. Each year we walk in memory of Jim, an amazing husband and father who we miss everyday. We also walk in memory of Sharon and Bill, Jim's mother and grandfather, and in honor of Jim's brother, Scott. Please consider joining our team and walking with us and/or sponsoring us by making a monetary donation. The money we raise will go to helping researchers continue to find a cure for this horrible disease. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. I encourage you get your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers involved!
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, 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 an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
Thank you for your love and support. We hope to see you at the walk!
Debbie, Jake and Meagan
