Please Support Our Team...
We're excited to be participating in the 2017 SuperHero
5k/10k Dash on May 6! This is an event designed to raise funds to
support those with ALS in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and parts
of Wisconsin. We need your help to reach our fundraising goals. Toether, we can support those living with Lou Gehrig's Disease and spread
awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from
the time of diagnosis.
Presently there is no known cause of the disease though research is being done.
People with ALS need our help more than ever. Insurance often
does not cover durable medical equipment--The ALS Association has a loan pool
that allows people to use equipment at no charge. Caregivers need a break--The
ALS Association pays for a skilled home care worker to sit with the person with
ALS while their caregiver runs errands. People with ALS may need help speaking
or controlling a TV, radio or light--The ALS Association provides augmentative
communication devices that speak for those in need and help control the
television, radio, lights and more.
