Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. Presently there is no cure for the disease, and it costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
ALS can strike anyone, and unfortunately it has hit close to home for our family. In July of 2018, our loving husband, wonderful father and the world’s most adoring Pop-Pop was diagnosed with this horrific disease. That's why our team has joined the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To help provide resources and services to families like ours battling this disease. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments and a cure.
PLEASE JOIN US!
Please consider joining our team, MIKE’S MINIONS, in The Walk to Defeat ALS or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
The 2020 Walk to Defeat ALS will be very different this year as most fundraising has been during this difficult time. Rather than 1 large group of many teams walking in Philadelphia, individual teams will “walk our way” in our own neighborhood and parks. Mike's Minions will “walk our way” at a local park, more info and directions to follow.
Mike’s Minions is our awesome team of family and our dearest friends. We were overwhelmed by all of your love and support last year. We can’t wait to do it again this October 24!
If you can’t walk with us, no problem! Just put on your Mike’s Minions shirt and walk your way down your street or in your backyard! The important thing is that we raise money to help fight this terrible disease.
Thank you for helping us reach our fundraising goal!
