2019 SuperHero 5K/10K Dash

Wow, What a Ride!

On May 11th Team "Wow, What a Ride!" will be participating in the SuperHero 5k/10k Dash, an event designed to raise funds in support of those with ALS throughout our region. For us, it's about supporting our dad/father-in-law/husband/grandpa/brother/uncle and friend---Dan Mulheran, and how he lives his life to the fullest even in the face of ALS.

When diagnosed this past fall, he shared a letter with family and friends that ended with one of his favorite quotes (that honestly couldn't capture him better). It goes like this: "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, WOW, WHAT A RIDE!"

Please join our family as we run, support everyone affected by ALS and just live life to the fullest with our superhero, Dan Mulheran. By raising awarenss and funds, we hope to increase research efforts towards a cure.

Thank You in advance for your love and support. 



About ALS...

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.

Thank You in advance for your love and support.
