Walk to Defeat ALS 2011



Thank you, thank you, to everyone who walked and donated to the Walk to Defeat ALS 2011--what a success it was this year! Everyone came together to raise

$432,050.57!!!

Can you believe that? What a blessing it will be to fund research and provide services to those battling this terrible disease.


It was awesome having our own team this year: Betty's Troops! We braved the rain and wind (I think it was the war-paint that helped). It's so cool to be on one side of the river and still see people walking on the opposite side... there were lots of us!



I can't explain to you all how much your support in this has meant to my family and I. My grandma Betty has had anything but an easy life, and it's so hard for her to face this at a time when she feels weak physically and mentally already. We want to do everything we can to help-- not only her, but all people whose lives have been turned upside-down by ALS. Each year, we are that much closer to relief. To peace of mind. To a cure.


Once again, thank you.
You are truly life savers.
