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.
