Thank you for helping us raise money to Defeat ALS® ! I decided to create this team to support our number one fan! Someone we are so incredibly blessed to have in our life. This person is the one we call hunny, wifey, mom, mommacita, sister, daughter, friend, best friend, and an amazing person. My sister and I are fortunate to be able to call her mom and best friend! My dad has been calling her hunny, wifey, and best bud for 41 years and counting now :) She has always been the most selfless person willing to do anything for others. But now it is time we fight for you! We fight for you and all of the others out there who are fighting this terrible disease as well as their friends and family fighting alongside them.
Throughout this process we have come to meet some amazing people who have family whom have suffered this terrible disease or people who are suffering themselves. This team is made up of amazing friends and family who have both been touched by these people and impacted in some form or another by ALS.
The Walk to Defeat ALS raises funds to support those affected by ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
That’s why we are walking. To change the statistics. To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. To ensure that no one ever hears the words: “You Have ALS” again.
The past two years have brought incredible advancements in ALS research, expanded access to care for people living with ALS, and enabled legislation that impacts the quality of life of people with ALS and their families.
But, we can’t stop now. The key to a cure begins with you.
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring Cathy’s Crew! With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
