Anna kindly introduced me to this website. There is only one thing I feel compelled to raise money for. Anna is running a half marathon and is raising money for ALS Research. I'd like to help her do that. Here's her write up:
ALS is a devastating disease that has affected a close family member. I would like to contribute in any way possible to the advancement of ALS Research so that a cure can be found. One hundred percent of the donations will be given to the ALS Association. There is no time left to lose. If you can, please donate to this cause. The ALS Association has committed more than $67 million to find effective treatments and a cure for Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Their global research effort has helped increase the number of scientists working on ALS, advanced new discoveries and treatments, and has shed light on the complex genetic and environmental factors involved in ALS.
