THANK YOU for vising the fundraising page of David DeBonis for the 2020 ALS ONE Boston Marathon Team. We are proud to be an official Charity Partner of the John Hancock Boston Marathon program.
I am running the Boston Marathon in Honor of my Friend, Luther Halwadjian, who died this year on November 16th, 2019 and my Grandfather, Alberto DeBonis, who lost his battle with ALS on August 10th, 2000.
Their dignity, courage and selfless nature will always be a source of inspiration. We shared many great moments together and I am a proud Friend and Grandson. I have never known two greater men.
ALS is a devastating disease and there is no cure. I am running the Boston Marathon to raise awareness and gain support to fight this disease. I am hopeful through your donations we can help fund more research to better understand ALS and help find a cure. No one and no family should have to endure the amount of suffering this disease causes.
