Support me in this fight against ALS

Dear Friends,

I am excited to announce that I am participating in the ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter’s Walk to Defeat ALS® to be held this April 26th 2009. I will be making this 2 mile walk to raise funds and awareness for the fight against ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and am writing to ask for your support.

In order to reach my fundraising goal, I need the help of individuals like you to help sponsor me in my endeavor. Rather than participating in this walk solely for a day of exercise and fun, I have pledged to raise $100 to help aid the ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter in their fight against ALS. Money raised through registration fees, Walker fundraising, and sponsorship funds helps to support services for more than 250 local patients and families living with ALS, and national research initiatives into a cure for ALS.

Any amount of contribution would be greatly appreciated. You can sponsor me in whichever format is most convenient for you - cash, check (made payable to the ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter), or credit card. Secure donations can be made online at Just click on the “Support a Walker” link, then look for my name or just click here.

Thank you in advance for all of your support and generosity. Regardless of my excitement to embark on this adventure, I realize that I could not do this without your help.
