Our brother Treg was diagnosed with ALS ten years ago. That's him in the Ohio State sweatshirt. He's a Buckeye but we love him anyway. We've been working to raise funds ever since Treg was diagnosed. As a family member, it's about the only thing you can do to feel like you're helping in some small way. Please join us by donating to our team or to any of our team members by clicking on a link to the right. It all goes to the 2020 walk, and we appreciate you all!
Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal! More info on ALS can be found below:
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!
