A little over 5,000 people are diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) each year. Unfortunately, one of those was a good friend of mine about four years ago at the young age of 26. I have witnessed first hand the daily challenges this disease presents. It not only takes a toll on the patient but also the friends and family of the person battling this awful disease. I am determined to fight and help find a cure. No human being should have to endure this horrible disease.
I will be running the 2020 Boston Marathon to raise money and help fight to find a cure. I will be running for my friend. I will be running for his family. And I will be running for the 5,000 people diagnosed this year.
Please join me in the fight by donating to the UMASS ALS Cellucci Fund.
The goal of the UMass ALS Cellucci Fund is to create a $10 million endowment to seed the boldest research ideas in the interdisiplinary labs under the direction of Robert H. Brown Jr., DPhil, MD, one of the world's foremost authorities on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Thank you for your support,
