Sept. 9 - Smiths Falls - Walk for ALS
On September 9th, I will be joined by my family and others determined to challenge ALS, by participating in Smiths Falls in one of the many "Walk for ALS" events. I'm inviting you to support me in this cause at www.ALSevents.ca/Ateam <http://www.ALSevents.ca/Ateam> That page shows support approaching $5,500. Please, help me hit the magical $6,000 mark before Saturday!
Support from the Walk for ALS helps to create a better reality for those of us living with ALS, and our families, by enabling access to support services and equipment through ALS Canada's regional offices.
The Walk also allows us to be hopeful about a brighter future where ALS will be a treatable, not terminal disease, by funding promising ALS research. The ALS Canada Research Program provides peer-reviewed grants with the greatest
potential to advance the field of ALS. Many leading ALS researchers believe that effective treatment options are now a matter of "when," not "if," and that research discovery is limited only by the amount of funding available to pursue it. This makes the Walk for ALS an important vehicle for progress. The ALS Society of Canada <https://www.als.ca/> is a registered charit certified by Imagine Canada <http://imaginecanada.ca/> . Their website <https://www.als.ca/> explains simply and clearly anything you may wish to learn about ALS.
Your donation supports those of us living with ALS and those who will receive this devastating diagnosis in the near future, until research renders ALS treatable, not terminal.
Please consider making a donation to this effort through my "A Team" event page at www.ALSevents.ca/Ateam <http://www.ALSevents.ca/Ateam>
You are also invited to walk with me; details are here
One day I will not be able to participate. "Today.Is.Not.That.Day!"
