Welcome to My Personal Page
The ALS Walk for Life is one of the world's largest gatherings of ALS patients, families and friends. Now in its 18th year, the Walk has raised over $14 million in support of Chicago's independent leader in ALS, the Les Turner ALS Foundation.
The money raised through the Walk helps 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 three full functioning research laboratories, each on providing hope of a future without ALS.
I'm participating in the 2019 ALS Walk for Life in memory of my sister, Michelle Crockett. Michelle was diagnosed in May, 2015 and in September, 2017 Michelle lost her fight with ALS. Michelle's warrior spirit lives on in me and my family. This year I will walk because we believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation. I walk so that every Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families living with ALS will receive the exceptional care and support that Michelle received. Finally I walk because I believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding the cure for ALS.
Join me as I Walk to end ALS.
