KEVIN TURNER FOUNDATION wrote -
In May 2010, former Univ. of Alabama and NFL fullback Kevin Turner was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. Since forming The Kevin Turner Foundation that same year, KT has become a leading advocate in the fight against ALS and its connection to brain injury. Kevin emerged as a prominent figure in the historic 2013 NFL concussion lawsuit settlement, but the fight is far from over for the thousands that suffer from this terrible disease.
Today there is still no cure for ALS, but together, we can move - AND CLIMB - mountains!
Climb For Kevin is truly an amazing opportunity, and there are two ways to help fight ALS via our Crowdrise campaign:
1) Join radio/television broadcaster & motivational speaker, Rachel Baribeau, on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition to the top of Tanzania's legendary Mt. Kilimanjaro! The two-week trip departs on March 18, 2014, and returns to the U.S. on April 4. Create your "team page" here to fundraise and spread the word!
2) Can't make the trip but still want to donate? Easy! Make individual donations to the right!
