Thank you for joining Friends of Tony to help us reach our fund raising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS. Furthermore, we want to participate the walk in honoring our amazing friend Tony Barrett, aka Dogbomb, whom had already been a long time inspiration to many people before he diagnosed with ALS.
Being inspiring as he was, Tony wasted no time after the diagnosis, and continue to spend time for his friends, his dogs, and spread the awareness of this terrible disease much as possible. He is a true hero.....Tony was the featured LA marathoner in 2019, and you can read more about him here http://weboc.alsa.org/site/DocServer/Tony_BarrettBio.pdf?docID=135136.
Tony's close friends, and furrys from all over the places, supported him at ALS walk - Irvine Chapter November 2018. Our team want to support our local community with the same level of energy, carrying on the spirit to fight the good fight, and spreading awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure. Gale Kangaroo and Tagatooth shoot and edited the walk moments from Triangle walk 2019 - NC Chapter for this video as well, check it out!!!!
Together, we will honor Tony, and help find the cure sooner!
Thank you! ~🌻

WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
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.
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us?
Amyotrophiclateral 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 a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
