As many of you know, Eagle lost a dear friend to ALS not long ago. Dale Starkey started with Eagle as a field adjuster in 1995 and was a supervisor at the time of her passing in 2011.
This year, Eagle will be forming a team for the Indianapolis Walk to Defeat ALS in Dale's memory. We'll be walking as Dale's Eagles to help raise money for care services, research, and advocacy for those afflicted by this crippling disease that strikes a new person in the U.S. every 90 minutes. Please consider walking with us or making a donation in Dale's memory to help Dale's Eagles reach the Team Goal of $1,750, and the Walk To Defeat ALS 2012 goal of $22,000,000
Thank you for helping us reach our fund raising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig?s Disease. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
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.
