In 2007 Ben's dad, Tom Wolf, was diagnosed with ALS. Since the fall of 2007 we have been walking as a family team and raising money for ALS. A large chunk of the money raised in Iowa goes directly to the Iowa chapter where it is used to directly serve and support Iowans living with ALS.
To date The Wolf Pack has raised $96,789.04! Of that total, Ben's mom Ann Wolf has raised $82,222.29. She is famous for her annual plant sale in early June. We would love to say our team reached the $100,000 mark this year. Help us by clicking the "Donate" button next to Ann's name.
This year the annual ALS walk is taking place wherever you are on Saturday, October 3rd. Walk in your neighborhood, your local park, wherever you happen to be.

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.
