My Grandpa Rich came to live with me and my family after he was diagnosed with ALS when I was 8 years old. He passed away two years later after a brave battle. The time he lived with us still affects me and I am grateful for all that the ALS Association did for my family and all they do for families currently battling ALS. I take part in the Walk to Defeat ALS every year, but now that I am older, I can do more to raise funds for the ALS Association. I have started a fundraising campaign called Mow Down ALS. I will donate money I make from mowing lawns and I am hoping others will be willing to match some of the funds I donate. Thank you for considering donating to this great cause!
