Racing Towards a Cure
Join me as I participate in the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s Strike Out ALS 5k and 1 Mile Run, Walk & Roll!
My friend, Kris Rankin, was diagnosed with ALS fairly recently at the age of 39. She is a wife, mom of three beautiful girls, and after getting her PhD, she has enjoyed a very successful career as an Assistant Professor in the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Division at UIC and as Co-Director of the Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Epidemiology Training Program. Her research interests have included women’s health, family planning, implementation science, and racial/ethnic and socioeconomic disparities in adverse birth outcomes. To me, Kris is a funny, athletic, loyal friend that I’ve known since high school. We played softball together on many Sunday afternoons, and I met my husband, Tony, at her wedding. I’m asking you to help because it’s one of the ways I can help her at this moment. She means so much to her family and friends.
I believe in the mission of the Les Turner ALS Foundation. I believe in providing the best comprehensive care to people living with ALS and their families in Chicagoland and I believe that the money we raise together will lead to treatments and a cure for ALS. This cause is important to me and people living with ALS need your help!
ALS is scary. Really scary. Its rapid progression can mean tomorrow is often worse than today. As a result, people living with ALS are overwhelmed and unsure of what questions to ask and what to do next. But that’s where the Les Turner ALS Foundation comes in. The Foundation is here to care for those affected by the disease, answer their questions and support them and their loved ones every step of their journey.
I’m proud to be a member of the Les Turner ALS Foundation family. Join me as we work to support people living with ALS and those who love them every step of the way! Please consider making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we can make an impact in the fight against ALS.
