Team Glo Jean

On Saturday, September 14, 2024 Team Glo Jean will, once again, participate in the annual ALS Les Turner Walk For Life event at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL. This marks 11 years since she fell asleep in death.  We will never forget her because she resides in our hearts! We walk not only for our loved one, Gloria Jean Stephens, who lost her fight to this horrific disease on August 4, 2013, but also to provide support, encouragement, awareness and raise funds so that the Les Turner Foundation can assist other families plagued with this illness as they did for us.   

The Les Turner ALS Walk for Life event is one of the world's largest gatherings of ALS patients, families and friends. 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.
