  1. Home & Family how to request a donation or sponsorship?Hi There,On October 26th, I'm joining hundreds of walkers for The ALS Association’s Walk to Defeat ALS®, and I need your support to make my 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. Upon diagnosis, doctors give ALS patients only two to five years to live.And that's why I’m walking – for those who can’t. My personal fundraising goal is $10,000, and I hope you’ll help me reach it.By making a one-time, tax-deductible donation, you can truly make a difference in the fight against ALS. 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.Sincerely,Maria Team Captain of Team Viper- About The ALS AssociationThe ALS Association is the only national nonprofit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front.
