Scooter’s bunch is a far-reaching group of family and friends in support of our dad Scott Hollinger. He was diagnosed with ALS in March of 2019. With some uncertainty related to COVID-19, the Pittsburgh Walk to Defeat ALS is moving to a neighborhood near Scooter. It will not be virtual, but it will be in consideration of social distancing guidelines in our own unique way. Stay tuned for more details to come soon!
Scooter is blessed with countless family and friends to support him through his ALS journey. We are eternally grateful for your contribution to reaching our fundraising goal in support of Scooter and his family. Due to COVID-19, it is more critical than ever to support the ALSAWPA so that they can continue their vital services for families who have beeb impacted by ALS.
In 2019, we were overwhelmed by your support as we raised $15,000 in just six week's time! As a result, Lindsay accepted the honor of Rookie of the Year on behalf of Team Scooter's Bunch at the ALSAWPA Holiday brunch in December. We hope you are able to join us for the Walk to Defeat ALS this year.

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

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!
