Racing Towards a Cure
Kris Rankin is a devoted mother of three young girls, a wife, daughter, aunt and dear friend to many. I actually met my husband at her wedding! That’s why when she was diagnosed with ALS at the age of 39, we felt the need to do something to help.
Our team, Rally For Rankin, is participating in the Strike Out ALS 5K and 1 mile Walk, Run and Roll as a show of support for Kris and her family, and as a way to give back to the Les Turner Foundation, which has done so much to help her. 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.
