2023 Hawaii Walk to Defeat ALS

808 ALS Vets


A former Naval Aviator, I was diagnosed with ALS in 2014. Veterans are twice as likely to be diagnosed with ALS than anyone else.  Since last years walk, I can't walk unaided and am confined to my wheelchair. I have great difficulty using my hands...what a difference a year makes.

Please consider walking with me (physically or virtually) or sponsoring me. With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.

Any support you could provide will go a long way in helping us advance the cause for a cure, spread awareness, and support those in our community that are living with ALS. 

Thank you for your support!



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. 

That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS®. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to effective treatments and cures. Please join us.


Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. 

ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need.
