On October 8th, 2017, We Run for ALS!
The Les Turner ALS Foundation has been Chicago’s leader in ALS patient care and research since 1977.
The money we raise together goes toward helping people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through the Foundation’s Home and Community Services 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 research laboratories, each one providing hope of a future without ALS.
Since I was a young boy, ALS has affected my family in a number of ways. I was not able to understand it then, but I understand it now. Through the process of earning a formal education, I have been able to learn more and more about the disease process that took the life of somebody close to me. In the year 2017, I have decided to contribute to the education, treatment, and research associated with ALS through the benefit of the Les Turner ALS Foundation.
Donations of all sizes are accepted and appreciated. I'm excited to run for Team Race for ALS in the Chicago Marathon this year! Thank you for your support.
