Bill died from ALS almost eight years ago. Even though life continues we miss him every day. We find special ways to honor his memory as a family throughout the year. But it is at the ALS Walk where we ask our extended family and friends to help honor Bill's memory. Bill was an integral part of the 2012 ALS Walk and it was his dream to see this walk continue to be a success to bring awareness and find a cure for this dreaded disease.
Because of Covid-19, this years walk will be different. The walk date is Saturday, July 25th and will consist of mini walks composed of our teams participants creating their own time to walk for the cure of ALS. Please consider walking and to make a donation in order to find a cure for ALS. We appreciate your consideration and help.

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.
