Hi there, y'all!
Team Wittenberg is on the move again. The annual ALS Association Walk to Defeat ALS will be on October 28th at the Miller/Knox Recreation area in Richmond. We are so excited to have Team Wittenberg join all the other teams,volunteers and Golden West Chapter (GWC) for an exciting walk along the bay. Please join us as a solo participant, volunteer, sponsor, donor or fundraiser.
Though there is still no know cure for ALS, we have not remained idle. Research remains robust due to the focused commitment of the the Golden West Chapter (GWC). Funding has been provided for hundreds of active projects in 12 countries around the world, representing a current commitment of over $52 million. I had the privilege to attend the 13th annual California ALS Research Summit, hosted by the Golden West Chapter, bringing together world renowned researchers, investigators, clinicians, biotech companies, government representatives and advocates in ALS and related fields. The enthusiasm of the researchers and the in roads that are making was exciting to observe
Equally important are the Care Services and Advocacy programs. More than 2000 people with ALS and their loved ones were served by the Golden West Chapter in 31 counties throughout California and Hawaii. They also provided numerous grants to people with ALS for durable medical/communication equipment needs, transportation support,emergency assistance and respite care. Through the Advocacy program, The GWC works tirelessly and assertively with states and national legislatures/agencies to ensure that funding, as well as policy decisions are directed toward ridding the world of this horrific disease. Your support makes a difference. It is only together that we will defeat ALS.
Please consider a donation to the GWC by using the link below. Or sign up as a member of Team Wittenberg and start your own fundraising efforts. I promise you a day to remember (Plus a Manhattan Soiree at our home when we reach our goal!)
As always thank you for your support and for keeping Harry and our family in your hearts.
