Ready to beat ALS
Hi folks, I'm happy to share that I will be participating in the Golden West Chapter of The ALS Association's Napa Valley Ride to Defeat ALS and Walk this year, my second year in a row! I'm aiming for another 100 miles to fight ALS and support research towards a cure.
I ride because my career mentor Marsha Maytum was diagnosed with ALS in 2020, and I'm inspired by her strength, grace, and vision to advocate for others suffering from ALS. Her sense of purpose and care for her community is instilled in everything we do, and I'm excited to bring that energy to Napa with our amazing team.
See below for more information about ALS, and please consider supporting our team. Every dollar will go directly to ALS treatment and cure research, and with your support I hope to get some PRs in the process :)
What is ALS?
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe.
Why We Need Your Help
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
