Edna enjoyed doing everything with her husband Dee from traveling, golfing, water and snow sports and spending time at their Bear Lake cabin. Her greatest accomplishment was by far her family and together her and Dee spent countless hours supporting them in many sports and activities. Edna is greatly missed, and left us two soon on October 5, 2016 at the age of 79. Together as family and friends we would love to walk in her memory and raise money to help support the fight in finding a cure to end this cruel disease.

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.
