Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with, or dies from ALS. In the time it takes to trek around Town Lake, another life is impacted by ALS. Another friend, brother, dad, daughter, athlete, soldier’s life is forever changed by this under-funded disease. We want to change that. We want to We want to help find a cure and a treatment for ALS, we want to help those diagnosed carry the load. They are our friends, our family, our heroes.
ALS diagnosis is 3 times as likely in military and 4 times as likely in athletes. Our communities in particular are being impacted by ALS more than the general population. Fortunately, our communities have the amazing ability to come together and rally behind a worthy cause. We have strength in our numbers; we have the courage to fight.
Join us on the evening of Friday, October 24, 2014, as we help our friends impacted by ALS carry the load for 90 minutes in the Every90Minutes Hero Ruck Challenge.
