Every year we walk we do so in celebration of Jacque's strength and courage as she battles this terrible disease. ALS, also known as Lou Gehrigs Disease, is a deadly illness with no known cause or cure. Gradually, a person is robbed of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. We are participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS® in NYC on May 4th to do our part in the battle against Lou Gehrig's Disease. We are proud that over the past six years Team Jacque has raised over $22,000 for the Walk to Defeat ALS and we hope to have a successful impact this year.
We would like to ask for your support either physical or financial. Team Jacque is returning for our 6th walk in honor of the most wonderful and inspiring woman. If you would like to join us in walking, please sign up using the link to the right "join team Jacque" (registration is free and you can set your own fundraising goal). We would love to see ALL of you there. If you are not able to join me at the walk in New York, please join my efforts in supporting such a wonderful cause by donating using the link to the right.
Your participation or tax-deductible donation will make a difference in the lives of thousands affected by ALS. The money we raise will help The ALS Association lead global research, assist people with ALS, fund multidisciplinary certified clinical care centers, and foster government partnerships. The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.
We need your help in this initiative, so please do anything you can; join our team, register as an individual walker in another city or make a donation to support our efforts. Your thoughts and prayers for Jacque are always appreciated.
