THE STORY:

My Grandmother Amelia recently passed away from ALS also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. If you know me, you know just how important she was to me and my family. This is a horrible disease, please help me find a cure for this disease.
Thank you all so much for your love and support! If you would like to walk with me, Piper, Will and my mom we would LOVE to have you! March 9th 2012. Check in at 4:30pm and walk is at 6pm. We can grab a celebratory dinner after with drinks of course!


Thank you for helping me reach my Walk to Defeat ALS® fundraising goal! This is an exciting opportunity for us to work together to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and to spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.

Please consider walking with me or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease. I encourage you get your friends, family, neighbors and coworkers involved!

Why We Need Your Help

Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.

Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.

This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease though support is bringing researchers closer to an answer. In the mean time it costs an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.

I met Amelia racing up & down her street one too many times. I was just the neighborhood cop but she bribed me with some cookies and the rest was history. I just started showing up at the house and she was able to do whatever she wanted. Although that’s mostly true, she touched not only my heart but my families too. She bought Girl Scout cookies from my daughter and opened our eyes to white labs. I now have 2. My heart was broken when I heard the news. I will always remember Amelia – oh yea, and Herb too. 5 years ago
