Mike is a dedicated husband and father, a collaborative coworker, and a trusted friend to all of us. He has a love for the outdoors, international travel, LA Dodger baseball, and Oregon State football. He recently retired from a career position at Stantec that took him around the world as a globally recognized expert in geosciences and engineering. He has helped mining clients engage their activities to minimize their impact to public health, safety and environment. He retired to fight this ALS disease that has taken hold of his neuromuscular system. We are here to fight with you Mike!
The ALS Association has provided Mike with equipment and resources to help him adjust to his condition. These resources have kept him safe along with many others who have been afflicted with this disease. We have an opportunity to show our support to Mike and to the ALSA by participating in activities across the US.
Please help us reach our fundraising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
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. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
