Your support really means the world to us. This fundraiser page is in memory of Mike's father who passed away in 2018 just after we got engaged.
John was a kind, loving, father who was supportive of our relationship and happy for our engagement. It would mean the world to us if you would support our fundraising page by making a charitable donation in loving memory of John.
If you would also like to join our team to Walk to Defeat ALS on Sunday, October 11 please sign up to join our team.
Thanks so much for helping our fundraiser succeed and supporting The ALS Association and its programs.
Michael & Aida
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
