BENEFITING: Project ALS
ORGANIZER: Project ALS
EVENT DATE: Nov 02, 2014
I am running the TCS New York City Marathon to support Project A.L.S. with a goal of raising $10,000 in honor of my grandfather Morton H. Sigel. My Grandfather Morton lost his battle to ALS in February of 2006.
Morton Sigel was a special man who touched the lives of many. He was a graduate and trustee of Clark University and a prominent businessman and philanthropist in the Worcester area. He founded Millbrook Distributors in 1960, received the Distinguished Service Award from Clark University in 2001 and was inducted into the Massachusetts Food Association Hall of Fame in 2005. He also served as Chair of the Worcester Foundation for Biomedical Research, and was instrumental in facilitating the successful merger of the Worcester Foundation with University of Massachusetts Medical School.
I am grateful for the opportunity to honor his memory and join my family in their continued support and charitable giving towards ALS Research.
Team Project A.L.S. is running the TCS NYC Marathon to bring attention to those who can no longer run due to ALS and to raise significant funds for aggressive, exceptional ALS research.
