Hi HH'ers!!! (Advance notice -- I cleared this with the Rev before posting. I'll probably repost/update sometime in early October.)
(Update - link was bad, plus the site was down for a couple of days. Embedded links now working)
On October 16, Mrs. red floyd and I are joining hundreds of walkers for The ALS Association’s Walk to Defeat ALS®, and we need your support to make our efforts really matter!
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a deadly illness with no known cause or cure.
It affects the motor neurons in a person's brain and spinal cord. When the motor neurons die, the muscles waste away. Gradually, a person is robbed of the ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. All the while, the mind remains sharp and aware of the total paralysis that is quickly setting in. Upon diagnosis, doctors give ALS patients only two to five years to live.
And that's why we're walking (OK, I'm walking, Sue will be pushed by me) – for those who can’t. Our efforts will help The ALS Association fund research to find the cause and cure of Lou Gehrig’s Disease, as well as support services for people affected by it. Our personal fundraising goal is $500 (combined) , and we hope you’ll help us reach it.
By making a one-time, tax-deductible donation, you can truly make a difference in the fight against ALS. Just visit our online fundraising website listed below to make a donation:
Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated. Every dime makes a difference! With your support, we can make a positive impact today in the lives of those living with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
