ALS is still here so we're still raising money!
Thanks for checking into my page!
UPDATE!!! Once again our friends Vince and Pat Foglia, through their Foglia Family Foundation, will very generously match any donations our team raises, up to $50,000!!! But we've gotta give them something to match, people! I need your help!
A lot has changed since I first met my buddy, Paul Launer, November of 2012. Our mutual friend, Bob Lee, introduced us because Paul was looking for someone to write things down he wanted to leave for his then elementary-school aged daughters, Aubrey and Sarah. Thus began our friendship and two year project! The biggest thing that HASN'T changed, though, is that we still have to find a cure for ALS and we still have PALS (Patients with ALS) to help--whether it be through respite care, nursing assistance, communication equipment assistance, social worker assistance . . . You name it, the Les Turner ALS Foundation does it all, from research to patient care and support.
As you probably know he lost his hard-fought battle with ALS on July 3, 2015. We started Paul Launer's Iron Horse Brigade for the 2013 ALS Walk for Life, with this year marking our 6th anniversary as a team and the 41st anniversary of the Les Turner ALS Foundation.
Sadly, ALS stories continue. We need to find a cure. We're revving up our Paul Launer's Iron Horse Brigade Team once again--with Paul's daughter Aubrey Launer as my co-captain and hopefully captain next year! If YOU'D like to join our team we would be grateful to have you. The Walk is on Saturday, 9/29/18 and it's downtown at Soldier Field. This is a beautiful, inspirational event that starts at 11:00- and because it's only a 2 mile walk you're done pretty quickly. Make a family day out of it!
So please help. Please join. Give generously if you can, though I greatly appreciate any and all donations!
