2019 ALS Walk for Life

Goin' for Gil

As September approaches our thoughts turn to Gil, his birthday on September 2nd and the annual Les Turner ALS Foundation Walk For Life.

Goin for Gil is participating in the Walk on Saturday, September 29th to honor Gils memory 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.

Now in its 17th year, the Walk has raised over $12 million in support of Chicagos independent leader in ALS, the Les Turner ALS Foundation. 

Together, we can make an impact in the fight against ALS. Our goal is to raise $15,000 and to make sure we’re doing our part to find a cure for this devastating disease, The Gilbert and Jacqueline R. Fern Foundation will match ALL donations. No donation is too small, every dollar counts and truly makes a difference. We can think of no better way to honor Gil than to participate in the Walk for Life. You know he’ll be walking with us from above.

With heartfelt gratitude and love,
Jackie and Robin
