We lost our beloved Ryan Farnsworth, to ALS in February of this year. For the past several years we have asked for your support in finding a cure for ALS in honor of Ryan - son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend. It is with a broken hearts that this year we ask you to support finding a cure not in honor, but in memory, of Ryan.
If you are able, please join our team and come to the walk. If you are not able to join the walk, please make a donation and help us find a cure. While it will not help Ryan, it will help thousands and thousands of those who are still on this painful and tragic journey called ALS.
Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and cures. Please consider joining our team in the Walk toDefeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
Amyotrophiclateral 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.
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!
