Please Support Jan's Justice Joggers...
Last summer Jan, our mom, daughter, sister, friend, was diagnosed with ALS. A group of us have decided to walk, run and jog in support of her. We started with a small group of 5 people thinking it would be a fun way to express our support and our group now over 10 people and growing. If you would like to join the team or donate please do so. As a fun way to hopefully increase donations we put some fun costume ideas based on certain donation levels. We are already over $3500 so now you just need to hit $5,000 with three weeks to go.

$2000 - kids will be in MNUFC jerseys with Superman and Batman capes

On April 21st our team will be participating in the SuperHero 5k/10k Dash, an event designed to raise funds in support of those with ALS throughout our region. We are reaching out to you because we need your help to reach our team fundraising goal. Together, we can support those living with Lou Gehrig's Disease while spreading awareness of the urgency to find treatments that will lead to a cure.
This is a great time to get your family, friends, colleagues and neighbors involved and become SuperHeroes! Please consider the difference that you might be able to make in the lives of people affected by this disease.
Why Your Help Matters...
Also referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly takes away the body's ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. There is currently no cure for the disease with life expectancy averaging 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Due to the rapid progression of ALS, the needs of someone living with the disease evolve rapidly over a short period of time. Often times insurance does not cover durable medical equipment, so The ALS Association utilizes a loan pool that allows people to access equipment at no charge. Caregivers often need a break, so The ALS Association pays for skilled home care workers to give those caregivers time. The ALS Association also provides augmentative communication devices that are critical when someone's ability to speak has been compromised.
All of these supports help individuals and families impacted by ALS live the fullest life possible, which is why we're asking you to support our fundraising efforts or join our team.
