My Mind is My Weapon
Thank you for joining our team and for helping us reach our fund raising goal of $20,000! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and raise awareness of the urgency to develop better treatments and to DEFEAT ALS.
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 the DC Walk to Defeat ALS today. Specifically, join Ben Flowe's Team: My Mind is My Weapon.
