Thank you, that really is my most important message. Thank you for all of my friends and coworkers that supported the Dream Team in this year's Walk to Defeat ALS. This year we got a late start and kicked off our fundraising just two weeks before the walk and set an aggressive goal of $20K. Thanks to the support of so many generous coworkers, friends, and family we exceeded our goal and raised $21,004. We know there are more donations coming in so we expect our final total to be more than $22K. On top of the amazing financial generosity we had more than 21 Dream Team walker's this year and the weather was perfect with sun 60 degree temps.

  • Michelle Acheson $20
  • Doug Anderson $750
  • Eric Blom $3,982
  • Jay Jedinak $1,600
  • Casey McNeese $4,072
  • Garry Montag $2,645

What is ALS?

Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of it's ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe.

1. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages two to five years from the time of diagnosis.

2. Every 90 minutes someone in U.S.A is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease.

3. ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease. Someone you know or love may die from ALS unless a cure is found.

4. Caring for a loved one with ALS costs on average of $200,000 each year.
