Friends and Family, thank you so much for supporting Team B.A.
Eric has been a full time employee of the Greater San Diego Chapter for 2.5 years now. We used to walk for Dad. Now we walk in his honor and for all the other people, families, and caretakers affected by ALS that we've come to know through this journey. We also walk for the people who don't have ALS yet but will get it if we do not find a cure. We would not wish this disease upon our worst enemy.
We can speak first hand how brutal and devastating ALS is for the people who get it and for the friends and family members subsequently impacted by it. We are incredibly proud and happy to be a part of such an amazing organization and with your help, continue to provide resources that are game changers for people with ALS.
The walk will be different this year but much of it is the same. Please get involved any of these ways:
Make a donation.
Join this team and become a fundraiser like we are.
On October 18:
Go for a walk where you feel safe and comfortable.
Or catch a good wave for B.A.
Or text or post a funny story about Dad a picture of him smiling
We understand that this is not the time a lot of us have expendable income, but we are asking to take a moment and make a positive impact and donate whatever you feel comfortable with for a great cause. As ambitious as it may be, we are trying to raise $15,000 to help support people, families, and caretakers affected by ALS throughout San Diego.
With love and appreciation,
The Andrews Sons, Brian, Eric, and Kris
Why We Need Your Help
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 a person with ALS 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.
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!
