Why I'm Participating...
My family and I will be participating in The Golden West Chapter of The ALS Association's SoCal Ride and Rally to Defeat ALS. We are participating to spread awareness for the urgency to find treatments and cures.
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
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cure or cause of the disease. 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. The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years from the time of diagnosis. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
