Welcome back Warriors!
I hope you and your family are healthy and safe. It’s hard to believe this will be Pat’s Warriors 10th Les Turner ALS Foundation Walk for Life!
And . . . . we're back in person! The walk will take place on Saturday, September 18th. We're so looking forward to seeing everyone at Soldier Field on walk day. Pat’s Warriors will do what we do best . . . . . celebrate Pat’s memory, honor those living with ALS, fundraise to help find a cure and continue to spread hope and courage.
The Coronavirus outbreak has brought an added layer of stress to our ALS community. As we’ve come to expect, the Les Turner ALS Foundation hasn’t skipped a beat in providing the services our ALS family have come to rely on. A COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund was established. This fund provides immediate help to families with ALS to cover the cost of basic needs such as sanitizing cleaner, food delivery, groceries and more. Additionally, the fund will cover ALS-related costs such as surgical masks, gloves, respiratory supplies and over-the counter medications. The Foundation’s Support Services Team continues to provide the most comprehensive support and care through telehealth visits.
As you can see, the foundation provides our families with what they need to navigate their ALS journey. As we keep Pat’s spirit close to our heart, we continue to fight his battle. Every year we walk, we as individuals are making a difference in the fight against ALS. Let’s continue to use our strength, our passion and our dedication to reach our goal to create a world free of ALS. Pat's Warriors . . . . as a team, we can make a miracle!
