Welcome to My Personal Fundraising Page
I am part of Team Race for ALS and will participate in the 2019 Bank of America Chicago Marathon of behalf of the Les Turner ALS Foundation. I am joined by a great group of friends: Ninfa, Martha, Blas, and Manny. We are running in memory of our friend Eric Queyquep. He was taken too soon from his loving family and friends, and we don't want anyone else to suffer this pain. We are also running in honor of Matt Toole, who is bravely fighting ALS.
I believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, I believe in providing the best possible care to ALS patients and their families and I believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding a cure for ALS. Join me as we race towards more than a finish line, we race towards a CURE!
Since 2011 Team Race for ALS- Chicago Marathon, has attracted over 200 runners from around the globe and has raised over $300,000 for the Foundation. In 2017, the team had 20 participants and raised over $30,000! The money we raise together goes toward helping 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 full functioning research laboratories, each providing hope of a future without ALS.
