Leo, Sue and Team "Leo and the Motor Neurons"
When the two of us participated in the 2015 ALS Walk for Life we had no idea of the size of this event. There were thousands of people gathered together: people with ALS (PALS), their families and friends, and people who came to honor the memory of a PALS. Many participants were wearing team t-shirts in all colors sporting their team names. "We've got to come up with a team name," Sue said to Leo.
"How about 'Leo and the Motor Neurons' for our team?" Leo replied. "My motor neurons aren't working, so our friends and family will be the motor neurons who will help me and other people living with ALS in this journey". At last year's 2016 ALS WAlk for Life' there were 45 of us in our gray -shirts with not only the team name but with a musical group of energetic neurons singing and playing. This year we're hoping to again Walk for LIfe as Leo's Motor Neurons not only show him our love and support, but to join in on the celebration of hope. Please join us for this year's walk at Soldier Field on Saturday, September 16..
Last year we raised over $7000 for the Les Turner ALS Foundation seving PALS and their families in the Chicagoland area and Northwestern Indiana. It is a truly awesome non-profit organization. It acts not only as a PALS advocacy group, but the foundation funds three research labs and a clinic. . We have formed this team to walk and raise awareness of ALS and to support other families affected by this disease. We are walking with our friends and family to feel their energy and the other thousands of people who dream of a cure to end ALS.
Please support us as we Walk to end ALS.
