Thank you for helping us reach our fund raising goal! Team db was created to honor our dear friend Dale Brantelli. Dale lost his battle with ALS and we now walk in his memory. Dale was humbled that we created this team; the funds we raise in his name will be used for research to help others and for community programs that aid those with ALS and their families.
My brother-in-law Kevin Krug is courageously fighting the battle with ALS and although this team was created to honor Dale, I have no doubt that he and Kevin would have been great band mates and he would be honored to have Kevin be part of our team's purpose.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
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.
