It was just three years ago that our friend Ed Rapp broke the news that he would retire from Caterpillar to focus on his fight against ALS. Immediately, friends and family rallied together, providing an overwhelming amount of support as Ed systematically laid out a plan to fight this disease.
For the past two years, we've been supporting Ed in the Walk to Defeat ALS. Last year’s Peoria Walk raised over $150K to support local ALS patients in the areas of care services, research and advocacy. TEAM RAPP alone raised just over $40K.
We're back again this year, and plan to be even stronger!
Please join us for this year's walk!
