BENEFITING: The ALS Association Western Pennsylvania Chapter
EVENT: Pittsburgh Marathon 2017
EVENT DATE: May 07, 2017
My name is Allison Farkas, and I just lost my father to this dreadful disease in August 2016.
I watched my dad battle this disease with such bravery and positivity. He was diagnosed November 2015; however, started symptoms early 2014. He had a very short run, but we praise God he is completely healed and whole, and rejoicing with our Lord!
I want to continue fighting to raise awareness and funds towards ALS research. Even though my dad did not get to witness a cure for ALS, I pray that I will be able to contribute towards and witness a cure in my lifetime. No one should have to battle this devastatingly, heartbreaking illness. Too many incredible lives have been lost to ALS, and it needs to STOP!
Help me to raise funds towards ALS research, because research is not cheap and requires a significant amount of money. Let's raise awareness about ALS and the many lives it strikes and effects! Thank you.
