Why I'm Participating..
May is ALS awareness month! This will be my 3rd year participating in the SoCal Ride to Defeat ALS to support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and to spread awareness for the urgency to find treatments and cures.
Reason I participate is that my immediate family has been affected multiple times and recently an extended family member was diagnosed. Obviously you understand why this fundraiser is so important to me. There needs to be a cure and your participation/donation contributes to the continued research for a cure.
Thank you so much in advance!!!
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 it's 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.
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.
4. Caring for a loved one with ALS costs on average of $200,000 each year.
