Welcome to Jeff's AngLerS 2019! Thank you for joining and supporting our team in this year's ALS Walk for Life!
We walk in honor of Jeff Semler - a loving father, grandfather, brother, husband, uncle and friend. Quite simply - one of the best people we've ever known! Jeff was diagnosed with ALS in February 2015. On March 5, 2016, Jeff lost his battle with this disease. This is our 3rd year of participating in this event!
Our team is participating in the 2019 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 and has raised well 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.
Join us as we Walk to end ALS.
