Thank you for helping us reach our fund raising goal! As you know, Greg was diagnosed with ALS in June of 2017. The support from friends, family, and colleagues has been overwhelming! We have increased our goal twice already, and are more motivated than ever to raise money to battle this ugly disease. Together we can
make a difference in the lives of Greg and others affected by Lou Gehrig’s
Disease in our local community. Please consider joining our team "Greg's Crew" in the Walk to
Defeat ALS®. We want to have Greg's Crew roll into Raley Field on October 5th with over 200 walkers!
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, 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 an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the
time of diagnosis.
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
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known
cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of
$200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a
difference and donate or join a walk today.
