YNWA — YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE
Welcome to Team Kenny! This year we're putting together a team to raise funds and further awareness for the ALS COMMUNITY in support of our beloved KENNETH MITCHELL.
As you know Kenny and his family have been living with ALS for over 5 years. During the enormous challenges and incredible loss we have also witnessed grace, humor, inspiration and courage. This event is a great opportunity to show further support for Kenny and family by joining them on the WALK TO DEFEAT ALS LOS ANGELES or make a DONATION in their honor to the ALS ASSOCIATION in hopes to find a cure.
Please join Ken and his wife Susan, daughter Lilah, son Kal, and brother Sean on SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2023 at 9AM at the UCLA Wilson Plaza. All ages are encouraged to join! And all are welcome to join the team regardless of whether you can make the event!

The Mitchell family is incredibly thankful for the tremendous support we've given them over the past 5 years. Let’s continue to show how much we adore Kenny and family by joining, giving and supporting this important endeavor however you can.
One of Kenny’s mantras that he adopted during this journey was YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE. No matter how difficult and painful things become you always know there are caring people around you to help lift you up. Which is something Kenny has tried to exemplify throughout his life, even in the midst of the most difficult times with this disease, “This day is a gift and I am grateful to share this moment with you." YNWA
WHY WE WALK - 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.
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.
