EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon
Thank you for visiting my fund-raising page. I'm very lucky and grateful for the opportunity to run this year's Boston Marathon as part of Team ALSMA. The ALS Association of Massachusetts does unbelievable work helping local families affected by ALS and I'm very proud to raise money for such a worthy cause in memory of my grandfather, Gregory Buckley.
Thank you for your generosity in supporting Team ALSMA.

Team ALSMA is a dedicated group of marathon runners who are raising awareness and vital funds to benefit the cutting-edge research, patient care programs and advocacy of the ALS Assn. MA Chapter. Each team member has a relationship to a patient who has battled or is battling this disease. They run because they can! Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progrssive, fatal, neuromuscular disease the slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2-5 years from the time of diagnosis. Every 90 minutes, some is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone will lose their battle with this disease. Please support a member of Team ALSMA!
