It's never to early to find a cure, so it's never to early to start reaching for our goal.
George and I walk In Memory of Jim Ketterer, the late & loving husband of our friend Karen, devoted father of AJ and Evan, cherished son/brother and friend too many. George and I have been walking for 10 plus years to try and bring enough awareness so that maybe someday soon, people can live a more normal, pain-free, longer life.

Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, 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 an ALS patient 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.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
