Rhode to a Cure - ALS Walk for Life
Hello Family and Friends,
I heard about the ALS Walk for Life through Jennifer Rhode, who was recently diagnosed with ALS. Jennifer has an extended family, which includes our three daughters. I am honored to walk with the family and friends of Jennifer to promote this important cause. Anyone who has met Jennifer will tell you she is truly a kind person, she loves to laugh, and she has inner strength. My hope is that our support helps strengthen her on this journey.
I am also participating in the ALS Walk for Life because I believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, I believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and I believe that the money we raise together will together will lead to finding the cure for ALS.
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. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
