Hello Family and Friends,
On June 15, 2017 our lives changed forever. Our Matty was diagnosed with ALS. As a family we have decided that we are going to fight this illness and do everything in our power to raise awareness. On September 29th we will join the ALS community and we ask all of you to join in our fight.
Our team MATTY MATTERS is participating in the 2017 ALS Walk for Life 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 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 16th year, the Walk has raised over $12 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.
Please help us to go Beuke Big and kick ALS in the ASS!!!
Love you all, The Beuke Family
