Warming Up The Boot

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a fatal neuromuscular disease that can strike anyone without warning. Every 90 minutes someone in this country will be diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes someone will lose their battle against this devastating disease.

The Walk to D'Feet ALS® is The ALS Association's national signature event. Each year, nearly 100,000 patients, men, women, children and corporations join together to raise funds in support of internationally driven cutting-edge ALS research and community-based patient services programs. Now in its eighth year, approximately 150 Walks will be held around the country in 2007.

Just found you through Lisa's post (see above.)

My father had ALS and there wasn't much we could do at the time. I just recently became reaware of the ALSA's efforts and I'm so glad to see that so many advancements are being made.

Keep it up! I can't wait to hear how it goes!
