The Maloney Clan of Family and Friends
Welcome Back to The Maloney Clan of Family and Friends!!!
To all our family and friends of Mike Maloney, I apologize for my late start in getting out the information to ensure that this summer on August 5th at 11:00 AM we are all ready to walk and take part in the Buffalo Walk to Defeat ALS being held at Coca-Cola Field this year. I am writing to you not only as a Team Captain but as a friend and teammate...... On February 1st when we received a reminder that the Participant Center was open online and team captains could register their team etc. Mike called me and asked me if I saw the message from the association etc. I thought I would shock him as in past years he always was kicking me in the butt to get me to get things done in order and on time...etc... So I immediately registered the team and called Mike and told him to check it out. Part of me thought he did not believe me....but when I left his house on February 2nd, 2017 at 5:00 PM he assured me he was going to go online and check our team page to see if I had indeed registered.( He always doubted me) I never knew whether he did that or not for as most of you know later that evening during the early morning hours of February 3rd Mike died and our lives all changed forever. Without my sidekick I have been slow on the draw to get this page going and to encourage you to sign up and register and donate. He did leave me with another sidekick...Ellyn of course, who has been sending me litlte texts emails or messages on the phone and in person to get this team rolling. And so with the greatest love in my heart for Michael Maloney and his family I am sending you my plea to once again become a part of Team Maloney. We need to honor the memory of Mike Maloney this year as we have never done before. Supporting Ellyn, Jenny, MaryBeth and Colleen is the best way to continue to show our love for Mike and our determination to help find a cure for "this insidious disease".... as Mike called it...
Please register today and spread the word and please if you have not done so consider those who may wish to SPONSOR our walk this year at any one of the levels...$500, $750, $1000.00, $1500.00, $2000.00 .....If you know of any business or person who would become a proud sponsor of this walk please contact me.We are in need of a more sponsors to make this walk break records. I am looking forward to trying to get at least 5-10 walkers a day to sign up/donate at any level so we can make the 2017 Walk to Defeat ALS the greatest tribute ever to Mike.
My heart is sad every day when I think of life without Mike but it is filled with joy when I remember all that he did and all that he hoped to do to find a cure for all those who walked with him and who would come after him. He has left us that HOPE so please please please join us this Summer. If you have any questions please just ask.
Once again the Maloney Clan of Family and Friends will be led by Team Captains- Myself and Colleen Maloney Griffith. Together we are hoping to make a difference for every person who has heard or will hear the words ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease. In Faith and In Hope let us walk with Gratitude for the life of Mike Maloney. Maureen "Moe" "Moey" Myers and Colleen Maloney Griffith
