Rich is well known for his 1969 Dodge Charger. One of the most asked questions from people that I can remember is "What engine does it have?" And the answer: "383". As a result, in 2020 I set a goal to raise $5 for each of the 383 cubic inches, $1,915. But thanks to all the generous donations, that initial goal was quickly surpassed, so I changed it to $10 per cubic inch, $3,830. We were able to beat this goal as well! Rich joked that he wished he had gotten the larger engine, a 440, to raise more funds. So now in 2021, I hope you will help us raise, or beat, $4,400! Any amount contributed to support the ALS Association will be greatly appreciated!
***UPDATE*** Thanks to the generous donors so far, this year's original goal was surpassed, and I have increased it to $8,800!
IN 2021, FOR EACH DOLLAR RAISED ON BEHALF OF TEAM CHARGER, JARED WILL RUN ONE TENTH (0.1) OF A MILE. THAT'S POTENTIALLY 440 MILES! HELP DEFEAT ALS (and get him in shape)!

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!
