Welcome to Nicollette's Personal Fundraising Page: In Memory of Fred Purcell
I am participating in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon as part of Les Turner's Team Race for ALS in memory of my late father, Fred Purcell, who lost his battle with ALS in 2015. I want there to be the best possible care available to people living with ALS and their families in the Chicagoland area and I believe that the funds we raise together will lead to a cure for ALS. The Les Turner Foundation was invaluable to my family and provides essential support to many families with a loved one fighting ALS. This cause is important to me and I'd greatly appreciate your support of my efforts.
Despite the steep obstacles that receiving an ALS diagnosis poses, help and hope are within reach. Founded in 1977, the Les Turner ALS Foundation is the leader in comprehensive ALS care in Chicagoland. Although they're one of the largest independent ALS groups in the country, they treat each person like family and are commited to supporting them every step of the way. Their individualized approach ensures each person living with the disease receives the best quality of care and their local community of support provides their loved ones with answers and encouragement.
Please consider making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we can make an impact and create a world free of ALS.
