Help me raise money to find a cure for ALS!
Welcome to My Fundraising Page
|Event:||Western Maryland Walk|
|Date:||Saturday, October 7, 2023|
|Team:||Take A Lapp for ALS|
I'm walking to raise money for ALS again this year. Our team, Take a Lapp for ALS, is walking in remembrance of Rodney Lapp. Rodney fought the good fight but lost his battle with ALS shortly after the walk in 2019. Rodney was an amazing man who taught all who knew him about having complete faith in a loving God. Although Rodney won't be with us in person at the walk this year, I'm sure he will be watching from Heaven because he knew how important it is to find a cure for this devastating, fatal disease.
Thank you for helping me reach my Walk to Defeat ALS fundraising goal! The Walk to Defeat ALS raises funds to support those affected by ALS and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS can strike anyone, and presently there is no known cause or cure.
That’s why I’m walking. To change the statistics. To bring help and hope to those living with the disease. To ensure that no one ever hears the words, “You Have ALS”, again.
There have been incredible advancements in ALS research in the last few years and expanded access to care for people living with ALS.
But, we can’t stop now. The key to a cure begins with you.
Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
