This team was created in support of Ed Coyle who was diagnosed with ALS in February of 2014. Ed is a loving husband to his wife Susanne to whom he will be married to for 50 years in 2020.
Ed has three children, Brenda, Eddie and Emily and five grandchildren. Together, with his two sons-in-laws and daughter-in-law, this disease has become a cause for the whole family to support and fight together.
We walk to raise awareness and provide funding for research, patient support and resources. We invite you to walk with us. If you are unable to join our team, perhaps you would consider helping by giving a financial donation.
We would also welcome your prayers for Ed.
Thanks for your love and support!
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.
