Race for a Reason's Fundraiser:

Alicia Runs for ALS

Race for a Reason

THE STORY:

ALS is a disease you heard about during the Ice Bucket Challenge a few years ago. When I completed the Ice Bucket Challenge that August, I didn’t know the direct impact that it would have on my life just a short time later. In January 2015 my Mom, Connie, started experiencing some strange symptoms- leg weakness, loss of balance, and heavy fatigue. It never got better, and we couldn’t determine a cause. Nearly two years later, we made a trip to the Cleveland Clinic in October 2016 where our worst fears were confirmed and she was diagnosed with ALS. For those who don’t know, ALS is terminal in 100% of cases. Advancements have been made in managing symptoms and genetic mapping, but there is no cure.

The victory as an ALS patient lies in truly living and making the most out of every day you have left. My parents are my source of strength and courage- they shaped me into who I am today, and my reason on April 22 is my Mom. So today, I run for her and I hope that you will support a cause to help those living with ALS.
