Thank you for helping us reach our fund raising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS.
This team was created in memory of Sharon House. She was an amazing, caring women who would do anything for her family. We would love to repay her by walking to help others find a cure, just as she participated in working for a cure in life. Once again, we thank you for helping us defeat ALS!
Why We Need Your Help
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.
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.
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!
