Help us raise money to find a cure for ALS!
|Date:||Saturday, September 28, 2019|
Stewies Steppers was started to honor my brother, Junior Klusmeier, who was battling this terrible disease. We lovingly call him Stewie as a nickname. My hope is that one day a cure for this disease will be found. This can only happen through research. Events such as this ALS walk make a tremendous impact on the money that goes to support this research. Please join our team and/or make a donation to support this cause!
Stewies Steppers is a group dedicated to the Walk for ALS. We walk in the Evansville, Indiana Walk to Defeat ALS . It is our greatest hope that a cure can be found. Thank you for supporting the ALS cause!
The battle continues to fight and find a cure for ALS. This our third year (hard to believe) to walk without Junior physically with us but we believe he continues with us in spirit. This will be our 6th year to participate in the Walk to Defeat ALS. We continue to share Junior's hope that a cure will be found soon to end this devastating and debilitating disease. We appreciate all of the support we receive through donations, being team members, and thought and prayers.
This is our second year to walk in memory and in honor of, "Stewie", Junior Klusmeier, and our 5th ALS Walk. Many people and their families continue to struggle with this devastating and fatal disease....and many have lost their battles this year We continue to share Junior's hope, that one day there will be a cure for ALS...so we continue our walk with that goal in mind and with his eternal presence to guide us. Thank you to everyone who supports the ALS cause!
This year we begin our walk not only in honor of but in memory of "Stewie", Junior Klusmeier. He won his almost four year ALS battle on February 16, 2017. While he no longer struggles with this devastating and fatal disease, many other people and their families continue their own battles. It was Junior's hope, and ours as well, that one day there will be a cure for ALS...so we continue our walk with that goal in mind. Thank you to everyone who supports the ALS cause! #nevergiveuphope #stewiesaysbepositive

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 though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs 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.
