Jeff's story is not your typical ALS story. He had bvFTD (Behavioral Variant Frontotemporal Degeneration)/ALS (bulbar onset). We discovered the FTD at the end of 2019 and the ALS was confirmed barely three months later. Jeff passed away almost three months to the date of the ALS diagnosis, at the age of 58.
Jeff loved his family and friends, his job, music, golfing and sports. Anyone who knew him, knew his passion for the Minnesota Vikings. He had a smile for everyone and he loved life.
We want to honor Jeff's memory by walking to help find a treatment and cure for ALS. We hope you can join us or donate to our team!

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.
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!
