#TeamChristie is a group of family, friends, and colleagues who have come together to fight ALS in the name of Christie Rizzuto (Ong) – a woman of courage, grace, and beauty as well as a wonderful mother, wife, sister and dear friend.
#TeamChristie is associated with The ALS Association Greater NY Chapter and the Walk to Defeat ALS/ @WalkforChristie in the Hudson Valley New York held each October.
We lost Christie this past November after a courageous and unprecedented battle. This will be our 9th walk, but our first one as we transition from 'in honor of' to 'in memory of'. This year is especially challenging as we are all dealing with the coronavirus, which has brought economic and social hardship to all of us in some form.
Family and friends will be supporting Christie and the ALS Association in the battle against the disease with a 9th annual @WalkforChristie in Poughkeepsie, NY this October. The 2020 @WalkforChristie will be held on Sunday (10/20) at the Walkway over the Hudson.
Please join us in our effort to help find a cure to end ALS. It's easy to donate and no amount is too small. If a donation is not possible at this time, please walk with us. If you can't make it to the walk, please think of Christie or say a prayer in her honor.
