Welcome to My Personal Page
The Les Turner ALS Foundation’s ALS Walk for Life has raised over $10 million dollars in 13 years and is one of the largest gatherings of the ALS community in the world. In 2014, the Walk broke records as 7,000 people came together to raise $1.3 MILLION. The money we raise together goes toward helping people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through the Foundation’s Home and Community Services 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 research laboratories, each one providing hope of a future without ALS.
On a more personal note, I'm participating because my Father, "Dave" began his fight against ALS with the help of the wonderful people at the Les Turner ALS Foundation over 15+ years ago. We walk in memory of "Dave" who lost his battle against ALS in December 2009 with the hope that some day a cure can be found for this terrible disease.
I’m participating in the ALS Walk for Life this year because I believe in the work of the Les Turner ALS Foundation.I believe in providing the best possible care to Chicagoland area ALS patients and their families and I believe that the money we raise together will lead to finding the cure for ALS. Join me as we Walk to end ALS.
