On July 11th, our team will be running/walking for Kevin, for time, and to one day have a cure for ALS. Kevin was diagnosed with ALS in May of 2015. He has fought every step of the way along with his incredible wife and two amazing daughters. Our team is particpating because we believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, we believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and we believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding the cure for ALS.

In less than a decade, Strike Out ALS has been able to raise over $300,000. Last year alone raised $50,000! The money we raise together goes toward helping 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. We are so excited that you are visiting our page today, and we hope that you will consider either joining our amazing cause and running or walking with us, or donating. No amount is too small and anything that you can give is greatly appreciated. Our goal for July 11th is to spread awareness and hope that there one day will be a cure for ALS, and we hope you will join us.Our team is participating in the 2017 Strike Out ALS 5k and 1 Mile Run, Walk & Roll because we believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, we believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and we believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding the cure for ALS.
