Three weeks ago in Seattle, I joined my mom and sisters in the ALS Foundation’s Walk to Defeat ALS. We were walking in memory of my dad who lost his battle to ALS in January, 2011. It was a very special weekend for our family honoring dad, and walking in support of the ALS Association and their efforts. In total, we raised $4,290 which put us in the top 10 teams for fundraising for an event that had over 1,000 participants! It was inspiring to see ALS patients and their friends/families feel empowered to find hope in a seemingly hopeless situation – not so much for themselves but for others in the future. I was encouraged, moved and humbled by both the patients at the ALS walk, as well as everyone who supported our team. Thanks!
