Welcome to My Personal Page
The Les Turner ALS Foundation’s ALS Walk for Life has raised over $10 million dollars in 13 years and is one of the largest gatherings of the ALS community in the world. In 2014, the Walk broke records as 7,000 people came together to raise $1.3 MILLION. The money we raise together goes toward helping people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through the Foundation’s Home and Community Services 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 research laboratories, each one providing hope of a future without ALS.
I'm participating in this year's walk to honor the memory of Lynne DiVenere and her wonderful loving supportive family, and in memory of her sister, Christine Jasch, who was my dear friend and co-worker for over 25 years. I’m also participating in the ALS Walk for Life because I believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, I believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and I believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding the cure for ALS. Please donate anything you can to help find a cure. Please join us for a live in person walk on Saturday September 18th at 9:30 am and celebrate the beautiful lives of Lynne and Chris. The walk takes off at 11am. This will be the team's 10th anniversary. Chris's Convoy was formed in 2011 with many of Chris's co-workers from RIC, their family members, Jonathan, and Chris's family.
