I'm participating in my first ever triathlon and the first ever Tri to Defeat ALS with Team Challenge ALS to raise funds and awareness to create a world without ALS. I made a promise to my friend, Kevin Heller who was a triathlete, right before he passed away from ALS that I would participate in a triathlon in his memory. So here we are, Kevin, I'm going to #GiveEmHeller!
And if you need more reasons to give, The ALS Association Golden West Chapter provides much needed patient services resources, funds global, cutting edge research, and much more in order to help those living with ALS. This is a devastating disease that has an average lifespan of 2-5 years and along the way takes away the ability to move, swallow, and eventually breathe.
The Tri to Defeat ALS is an exciting opportunity for us to work together to support those affected by ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency of our cause and to push for treatments and a cure.
Challenging ALS is important to me. I'm asking for your help. Please make a donation, join my team, or sign up to be a volunteer today.
