Hi Everyone,
First, I want to thank you for your support through the last ten years of my Walk for ALS.
This support has helped countless families who have had ALS enter their lives.
We are now at an important juncture of ALS research, such that; ALS Canada believes that ALS will become a treatable illness in the next decade. To reflect this progress, they have changed the name of the walk to, The Walk to End ALS.
I kind of like this name!
I love the message of hope that this brings to families of the future who will not have to face the devastating effects of an incurable terminal illness that my family had to face 12 years ago when I was given my diagnosis.
The losses have been immense and I have detailed these in a book that I have written. This book is called, Still Life, and will be available in the fall of 2019.
I write a lot about the enormous challenges that we have faced with not only my ALS but also with the loss of my son Zach and his wonderful partner Kaya. Although the tale is very sad, it also provides insight to how we all have the ability to choose to make peace with adversity and tragedy.
I have had a long run with ALS, and I feel very fortunate to still be able to fundraise for a future without ALS
Appreciatively yours,
Jeff
I am participating in the 2019 Walk to End ALS on because I want to unite with my passionate community to celebrate hope for a future without ALS. I want to honour those we have loved and lost and show my support for the 3,000 ians and their families living with this disease. 
ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is a terminal disease that takes away people’s ability to walk, talk, and eventually breathe on their own. This cause is very important to me and your support makes an immediate impact. 
 
Your support will help to:

create a better day-to-day reality for people and families living with ALS by providing community-based support throughout Ontario - like in-home visits and support groups – as well as delivering necessary medical equipment like hospital beds, wheelchairs, stairlifts and other items that increase safety in the home, at no cost to those who need them.
 

further scientific progress by investing in the ALS Canada Research Program, which funds promising ALS research. This program provides peer-reviewed grants to researchers whose work has the greatest potential to advance the field of ALS. There’s been more progress made in ALS research in the last five years than over the last century – we need to keep building on this momentum.

Please consider donating toward my 2019 Walk to End ALS.
 
Support me now - we are stronger together!
