Friends and Family,
I want to sincerely thank you for your past support of the Greensboro Walk to Defeat ALS. The success of the Walk would not have been possible without the continued support from individuals like you. I am writing once again to ask for your support for the 2017 Greensboro Walk to Defeat ALS.
The upcoming walk will take place on May 6th, at Center City Park. It means so much to my family and me to raise money for a cause that we are so passionate about. The primary mission of the ALS Association is to find a cure and improve the lives of people living with ALS. Proceeds from the walk fund nationally and internationally cutting-edge research programs and community based patient services and programs.
As you know, my husband, Murray Abrams, passed away from this disease, and since then there has been no new ALS break through. Please join my team Murray’s Marchers and me as we walk in memory of my husband on Saturday, May 6th 2017 at Center City Park in downtown Greensboro at 9AM.
I appreciate your continued support, and hope you will be able to join me or donate to this worthy cause. Thank you.

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.
