Thanks for visiting my fundraising page!
I'm running the 13.1-mile 1/2 Seaside Marathon in Seaside NJ on October 18th and hoping you'll support me. I'm raising critical funds to support ALS ONE's ALS research and care and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.
If you know me, then you know about ALS ONE, but if you don't, here's a bit about this amazing organization that I support wholeheartedly. ALS ONE was formed by my good friend, colleague teammate and mentor, Kevin Gosnell, to unite brilliant world-leaders in ALS research and care to expedite breakthrough treatments and an ultimate cure for ALS while providing essential equipment and care to those battling the disease now. Kevin did this after his own ALS diagnosis in the prime of his life at age 46, knowing full well that it would not benefit him, but did so to help all others who would be diagnosed with this devastating disease in the future. Kevin passed just 18 months after his diagnosis but ALS ONE is thriving and making measurable and meaningful differences in ALS research and care. The hope on the horizon has never been brighter and is fueld by the kindness and generosity of donations made through campaigns just like this. Your help is so gratefully appreciated!
ALS ONE is a partnership of world-leading ALS researchers, doctors, and care practitioners focused on finding treatments for ALS and novel approaches to improve care for those battling the disease now. The unprecedented linking of minds and resources from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI), and Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS), is unique for its leadership in efficiency, dedication to innovative research, and commitment to increasing access to care and treatment.
ONE TEAM: Dr. Merit Cudkowicz, MD, MSc, Chief of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH); Dr. Robert Brown Jr., MD, DPhil, Chief of Neurology, UMass Medical School & Center; Dr. Steve Perrin, Ph.D., Chief Science Officer, ALS Therapy Development Institute; Dr. Nazem Atassi, MD Associate Director of the Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI) at MGH; Dr. James Berry, MD, Co-Director of the MGH Neuromuscular Division and of the MGH ALS Unit, and he is an Associate Medical Director of the MGH Neurological Clinical Research Institute (NCRI); and Ron Hoffman, Founder and Director Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS). ONE GOAL: To identify breakthrough treatments and ultimate cure for ALS while supporting those who are battling the disease with resources and essential equipment to help them live their best lives while navigating the devastating toll that ALS takes.
