I am eight-years-old. This is my third Hawaii Walk to Defeat ALS and I am looking forward to having some fun with you. I am waking in honor of all our friends in Hawaii living with ALS. Bring your family and friends and stop by to visit me at the Keiki Zone after completing the nearly two mile lap around the park. Please join my team today and help all of the people with ALS in Hawaii.
Mahalo for helping meet my goal,

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 yet it still costs loved ones 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.
