Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal! In March of 2019 our family was changed forever with the diagnosis of ALS that came to our husband, father, and granddad, Ken Wallace. Team Ken Head was formed just to help us come together as a family to try to do something to contribute to the fight of this aggressive and devastating disease.
Ken has been strong and active his entire life until the past year or so. He is an avid sports fan, especially baseball, which he played in high school. He ran a marathon in his 40s, and swam and biked well into his 70s. Though his physical strength has deteriorated rapidly in the last year, he continues to be a pillar emotional and spiritual strength, and beloved by all his family. He is an amazing man.
We appreciate your help and support! Please consider joining our team in the Walk toDefeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
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. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
