Personal Amount Raised
Personal fundraising goal: $150.00
Welcome to My Personal Page
In working to develop new medicines to treat ALS, I came to know the Golden West Chapter and all they do for people living with ALS. Those with ALS face enormous challenges following their diagnosis and the Golden West Chapter is there with them every step of the way. Their commitment inspired me to join this fundraiser 5 years ago and I became a cycling enthusiast because of it. Join me in raising funds for this worthy cause.
- The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years from the time of diagnosis.
- Every 90 minutes someone in this country is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease.
- ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease. Someone you know or love may die from ALS unless a cure is found.
- Caring for a loved one with ALS costs on average of $200,000 each year.
