Last summer my family recieved devestating news, my sister Jennifer was diagonsed with ALS. Through everything she has shown incredible strength, courage and hope. Her warmth, humor, and generosity have only shown brighter. She asked us if we would walk with her and the Les Turner ALS Foundation this fall to raise money for research and support others with ALS. While the future is unknown, today we walk together on the Rhode to a Cure. Any support will give hope to not only us, but all those ALS affects.
The ALS Walk for Life is one of the world's largest gatherings of ALS patients, families and friends. Since its inception in 2002, the Walk has raised over $12 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 one providing hope of a future without ALS.
Join me as we Walk to end ALS.
