I am raising money for the ALS Association. Can you spare a dime to help me out?
Three days. In three days, on Sunday, October 8, I will be running the Chicago Marathon for the fourth time. As in the previous three years I am running to raise money for the ALS Association, the disease that takes someone’s life every 90 minutes. As you probably know my dad’s life was one of those. The ALS Association has done so many great things for pALS, their families, and worldwide ALS research. The personal attention that I have received from ALSA staff really helped me through these trying times. Personal encouragement from Maryilene is THE reason that I am a marathon runner.
Money raised from the ice bucket challenge, along with yearly walks, runs, and other fundraisers have provided research funds to clinics throughout the world (research updates). The research funds made available continue to play a crucial role in understanding this mysterious disease.
Please consider donating a few bucks to support this great organization? As an added bonus, I will share a video of kids soaking me with buckets of water.
