Red's Raiders & Chris's Convoy
Our Team: Red's Raiders & Chris's Convoy is participating in the 2018 ALS Walk for Life because we believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, we believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and we believe that the money we raise together will together will lead to finding the cure for ALS.
We're walking in honor of Lynne Divenere and in memory of her sister, Chris. Lynne has had to deal w/this disease for far too long, w/her dad, and then her sister. It is far past time to find a cure for this disease. We miss Chris greatly, and continue to walk her path w/ALS as it continues to affect so many people. Join Lynne and Chris's mission to raise funds for research and support for persons w/ALS.
The ALS Walk for Life is one of the world's largest gatherings of ALS patients, families and friends. Now in its 16th year, the Walk has raised over $12 million in support of Chicago's independent leader in ALS, the Les Turner ALS Foundation.
The money raised through the Walk helps people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through the Foundation’s Home and Community Service and grant programs. It also supports the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine where PALS are seen by a multi-disciplinary clinical staff at the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic, ensuring no part of their disease goes unseen and untreated. The Center also supports three full functioning research laboratories, each one providing hope of a future without ALS.
Join us as we Walk to end ALS.
