Please Help us support the ALS Society...
On May 14th our team will be participating in the SuperHero 5k/10k and Kids Dash in Memory of Kevin McDevitt. He was diagnosed with ALS in December 2020 and passed away from the disease after 2 short years in Februrary 2022. Through that difficult time, the ALS society was there to provide information, support, and durable medical equipment at no cost him. We are hopeful that with our help, more ALS patients and families will find the same support, and hopefully a cure.
Why Your Help Matters...
Also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly takes away the body's ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. There is currently no cure for the disease with life expectancy averaging 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
The ALS society provides durable medical equipment directly to the patient's home, such as wheelchairs, motorized scooters, hospital beds, ands lifts to help with mobility as part of a loan pool. It provides speech equipment and software to allow ALS patients continue to communicate with family and friends as the ability to speak wanes. It also provides caregiver respite as the need for physical care for ALS patients increases over time.
All of these supports help individuals and families impacted by ALS live the fullest life possible, which is why we're asking you to support our fundraising efforts or join our team.
