If you found our team, you probably know why you are here. Sean Collins died from ALS in 2013. He was only 44 years old and Jack was 6 months old. We walk to make sure that no other families will ever have to endure what we went through.
While we do not plan on attending this event, we ask you to please donate and do something special in memory of Sean on October 12

Amyotrophiclateral 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 peopleliving with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
