Why I'm Participating...
A very dear friend and golfing buddy was recently diagnosed with ALS, so I will be participating in The Golden West Chapter of The ALS Association's SoCal Ride and Rally to Defeat ALS. I’m participating to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and 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
1. The average life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years from the time of diagnosis.
2. Every 90 minutes someone in this country is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease.
3. 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. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
4. Caring for a loved one with ALS costs on average of $200,000 each year.
Thank you for supporting my team!
