Our backbone gives us structure and our muscles are the engine to our body, without them we could not do anything, we cannot be whole. ALS is a disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord that leads to the degeneration of the muscles throughout our body. My grandmother was recently diagnosed with ALS. Not only is it affecting her life greatly, but my families as well. She is what keeps my family together. She is the backbone and muscles to my family. Without her we could not be whole. My family and I will be running a 5k to honor her strength for fighting ALS. Help us strike out ALS! Our goal is to raise $1000 any donation will be greatly appreciated.
