Thank you for saying “yes” to walk with our It Takes a Village team on October 20th! Just click “join our team” to register. As I said, I’m happy to do the fundraising and you bless me by just walking with me. But, if you feel like you want to donate to our team goal, click “donate to a team member” (that’s you). Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS.
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.
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 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. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
