As Kyle said so well- "Walking
for ALS is more than just walking to support a cause. It brings our family
together. It's an expression of love and support for one another and the
community of people affected by this disease. I'm grateful for the opportunity
to share this time with people who supported me during my father's battle with
ALS. I know he wanted all of us "Rebels" to love and support one
another after he died and we walk together to do just that."
