Our Dad was diagnosed with ALS in July of 2015, we want to make it our mission to "Dig For A Cure" to this brutal disease. Even though our Dad passed away in December 2016, we want to continue fighting for all individuals battling this disease. Team Joe Campbell is committed to raising money for the ALS Association to support people with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure. We really hope that you consider either donating to Team Joe Campbell or joining us on September 29th at Rupp Arena in Lexington, KY in the Walk to Defeat ALS.
Thank you all for all the support on this journey!
Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
