Did you know the lifetime risk of developing ALS is just 1 in 300? There is no known cure for ALS, as it has been underfunded since discovered. We can help change the course of the disease and ensure that progress is made towards finding life-enhancing treatments and a cure.
The Les Turner ALS 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 am participating in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon as part of Team Race for ALS because I believe in the mission of the Les Turner ALS Foundation! My beautiful mother was released from this horrific disease on June 11th, 2021. The Foundation accompanied us thru our ALS journey and offset some of the overwhelming financial costs by loaning us equipment not covered by insurance. This is critical to families as on top of the extreme suffering, an ALS diagnosis can put them in a financial crisis. I believe in providing the best possible care to people living with ALS and their families in the Chicagoland area and I believe that the funds we raise together will lead to a cure for ALS.
Together, we can make an impact and create a world free of ALS.
