Lou Gehrig's Disease or ALS hits close to home for the Cure Climber's! One of the strongest people I have know lost his battle to ALS. No one in my life has put as much heart and soul into every breath he took! After his diagnosis he decided to embark on a journey across the country on his Triumph! He has taught me to never give up, and to honor his memory we will never stop climbing to end this terrible disease! We Miss you Bugs!
We have decided to use our energy to generate support and awareness for The ALS assosiation to help find a CURE for this terrible disease!
