HisGrip Home Care is delighted to be a sponsor of this event to raise funds for the research of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). ALS is a disease that attacks the motor neurons, or nerve cells, in the brain and spinal cord. It is more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. ALS can strike anyone. Without warning it happens to 15 people each day in the United States. The average life expectancy is only two to five years from the time of diagnosis. ALS slowly takes away the ability to move, speak, swallow, and ultimately breathe. There is no cure so there are no survivors to tell their stories.
Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS while another person with ALS dies. There are currently 30,000 Americans living with ALS. Without raising awareness and funding ALS will not receive the research necessary to find a cure. It will continue to strike down every person who is diagnosed.
Please come out and support HisGrip Home Care as we sponsor this event and join our friends at the Johns Creek Hard Exercise Works www.hardexerciseworks.com to raise money as team.
