As most of you know, in July 2019 our lives were changed forever. Our dad, Tony, was diagnosed with ALS after 6 months of testing. He quickly made the decision to LIVE LIFE while we fight this battle, and we are asking you to fight with us. Last year, with the help of our incredible friends and family, we were able to raise just over $9,000.00 - we were blown away! Our goal this year is to raise $13,000.00, as a tribute of dad's college baseball number, 13.

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 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!
