THE STORY:

As some of you may be aware, in May of 2012, my girlfriends father Mike Estrada was diagnosed with ALS, aka Lou Gherig's disease. This deadly illness with no cause or cure gives it's patients a life expectancy of 2-5 years from diagnosis, affecting nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord and robbing innocent victims of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe.

Mr. Estrada is one of the most charming and charismatic people I've ever met (the ladies still love him), as evidenced from his numerous salesman of the year accolades at 3M and the fellowship he's maintained with all of his many friends, family, and former colleagues. He's a great man of faith, still considered incredibly blessed by God. His lovely wife and extended family have been amazing caretakers to say the least and this Sunday I'm going to run on his behalf and kindly ask that we all join in on caretaking to help raise awareness and funds to research a cure for this debilitating disease.

I apologize sincerely for the last minute attempt but would appreciate if you could donate at least $1 for every mile I run this Sunday ($25 suggested) in order to meet my fundraising goal of $1,000 and my lifelong goal of running the NY marathon. In the interest of time, I've provided some incentives below : )

REWARDS FOR ALL DONATIONS
1) Nass' NY Marathon Mixtape - includes an eclectic mix of never before heard eye of the tiger tunes to pump you up like Hans & Franz and Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.

2) Free Entrance to Afterparty at Brooklyn Bowl

thanks for your time and attention
Nass

ABOUT ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.

There is currently no cure for ALS, but researchers are making progress every day which can allow ALS patients to live longer and more comfortably. The disease can be more aggressive, or work more slowly paralyzing patients over the course of a few years. Unfortunately, the medical equipment and treatments that patients need can be very expensive, and even with medical insurance, the financial toll that the disease takes can rival the emotional one.

The ALS Association supports patients and their families throughout this devastating process, and they also fund research that will help patients and their families in the future.
