THANK YOU for helping Karen's Kiddos reach our fundraising goal!
Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS --- like our mom, Karen, who lost her battle in April 2017. We cannot express just how much help and hope this organization provided to our family throughout our mom's 2 year fight.
So please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
And THANK YOU for helping us "pay it forward" by raising money to support people in our community currently battling ALS, as well as spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure.
About ALS and 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!
