Team Mo' Better
On Saturday, September 29, 2018 our team, Team Mo Better, is participating in the 2018 ALS Walk for Life in memory of Michelle Crockett. Michelle lost her fight with ALS last year. But the battle to find a cure and provide hope continues. Her warrior spirit lives on in me and my family every day. This year we will walk because we believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation. We walk so that every Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families living with ALS will receive the exceptional care and support that Michelle received. Finally we walk because we 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. Now in its 17th year, the Walk has raised over $13 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.
We hope those of you who were inspired by Michelle’s amazing spirit will help us celebrate her memory and continue her belief that one day, we will find a cure for ALS.
Won’t you please join us as we Walk to end ALS.
Your Team Captain,
