It’s that time of year again! The Walk toDefeat ALS in support of Linda Perez. This is our 5th year participating and we've had successful campaigns to help support the fight against ALS.
This year is different from previous walks because Linda will be there in spirit alone. She has lost her battle to this awful disease.
This event is so important to us and your donations will support the efforts to find a cure. It is my hope and prayer that this doesn't happen to anyone else.
