I'm hosting a Family Yoga for ALS fundraiser on September 18th at the Dunwoody Nature Center!  I hope you can join us.

 

I really hate asking people for money, but this is a cause I'm very passionate about.  When my aunt Sally was diagnosed with ALS in 2012, my family, especially my uncle Mark, jumped in to do a lot of fundraising for the ALS Association.  I hated the idea of asking people for money, and instead got involved with the Advocacy Chapter of the ALS Association.  I didn't mind asking the government for money!  ALS patients lose the ability to control all muscles and lose the ability to speak (plus, it's very difficult to travel), and I wanted to help representing their interests at the Georgia State Capital and in Washington.  I've worked with the Georgia and National Assocations on securing funding for research for a cure for ALS, as well as increasing access to care for ALS patients, including the elimination of a waiting period to receive Social Security Disability benefits.

This yoga event is my first fundraiser, and I'm very thankful for the support extended thus far.
