It All Counts Team Supports Sheri Counts
I am so excited to be on our sixth year in the battle against ALS! We have had such a great group of people supporting us every year and we're very thankful for that . Since I was diagnosed in 2015 good progress has been made in the battle against ALS. Now there is new medicine, new discoveries and more progress in this fight .Last year, our team raised over $4,000.00! We are thankful to be able to participate virtually this year and continue the fight against ALS.
My family and I are incredibly grateful for all the support and encouragement from family, friends, companies, volunteers and the ALS Iowa chapter.
I hope you will consider joining my team or another. All contributions count in this fight and others like myself are grateful for each one.

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.
