Please Support Me...
On May 14th our team will be participating in the SuperHero 5k/10k Dash, an event designed to raise funds in support of those with ALS throughout our region. We are reaching out to you because we need your help to reach our team fundraising goal. Together, we can support those living with ALS while spreading awareness of the urgency to find treatments that will lead to a cure.
This is a great time to get your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors involved and become SuperHeroes! Please consider the difference that you might be able to make in the lives of people affected by this disease.
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 Association provides crucial support to individuals and families impacted by ALS including: covering the cost of much needed equipment through a loan pool program, paying for skilled home care workers to give caregivers some time when they need a break or have other needs to tend to, and providing communiction devices for those with ALS when the ability to speak has been compromised. All of these to help those impacted by ALS live the fullest life possible, which is why we're asking you to support our fundraising efforts or join our team.
The ALS Association was a crucial resource for my family throughout my mom's ALS journey and our support now can help provide the same resources for others who face this terrible disease.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you! - Beth
