BENEFITING: The ALS Association
James Akers Jr
After my strokes, I was approached by Nigel Robertson about joining the Board of the Greenville Polo Classic. The Greenville Polo Classic was started after Nigel's father passed away of ALS. The goal is to raise money for the ALS Association and the GHS Neurological Insititute. I'm not sure how much you know about my story but when once they found the blood clot at the base of my brain the doctor at St. Francis told me I needed to be transferred to GHS because "they have access to better training and equipment". In my opinion, I likely wouldn't be here to send this email without the GHS Neurological Institute. This year I would like to raise at least $5,000 for The Greenville Polo Classic. This is a cause that is obviously very near and dear to my heart. As those of you who have been my friend for a while know, it all adds up... every $10 or $20 donation adds up quickly! So please, consider making a contribution of any amount?
