Ride to Defeat ALS and Trail Run/Walk • May 15, 2021 • Virtual Event

Thank you for visiting our team page.

I started Team Grandpa in 2014 when my grandfather received his ALS diagnosis. He passed away in 2017 as a result of this terrible disease.

Our team has continued to take part in ALSA events on an annual basis. I also volunteer my time as a member of the planning committee for the SoCal Ride to Defeat ALS.

This year, the SoCal Ride is virtual. You can do any physical activity on the day of the event to spread awareness. I'd love it if you snap a selfie and tag @socalridetodefeatals and @veg_she so we can share your posts. 

Together we are challenging ALS and making a difference in the lives of those impacted by this devastating disease. 


I'd love for YOU to be a part of our family team!
