  • Kristen Murray:
    Best of luck! Thinking of you and Aunt Marian❤️

As most of you know, my mom lost her battle to ALS in 2011. Nothing was harder than watching my once vivacious and carefree mom struggle to live with this terminal, uncurable illness. Everyday things that we take for granted, like speaking, eating, walking, or even holding a pen became virtually impossible for her. 

ALS of Michigan provides critically needed, community based services to Michigan pALS and their families. From respite care to speech services to equipment loans to support groups, seminars, and workshops, they are there every step of the way to make living with ALS a little bit easier.

But, they need your help! There are close to 1,000 pALS (people with ALS) in Michigan battling ALS everyday, and another 200 are diagnosed every year. Please support our walk team so ALS of Michigan can continue to provide the services that people like my mom have come to depend on. 

Thank you!

Marisa, team captain,  Miles for Marian
