Central Jersey Walk

Team Sonal

Dear Family and Friends,

As you know, this year’s Walk to Defeat ALS takes place on Saturday, October 7th at the Somerset Patriots TD Bank Ballpark.  We know how busy we all are, so we wanted to send you a friendly reminder to register and donate in advance.

As you all know, Sonal was diagnosed with ALS in 2012 and sadly passed away in November 2015. During her amazing life, she served as a vital ALS advocate by traveling to Washington DC last May to join the ALS Association in pushing for legislation and funding for research from the government. Also, the legislative bill that she proposed to create an NJ ALS Awareness Day passed and became law, and incredible accomplishment to raise awareness for our urgent cause.

Every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes someone dies of the fatal illness. The ALS Walk will benefit the ALS Association, which is working hard on all fronts with research, advocacy, and patient care. 

Your participation and contribution would make a big difference as we continue our quest to end ALS and offer care to people suffering from this horrible disease. I want to make sure that anyone willing to join us in the fight against ALS has the opportunity to do so.

We hope you will join us at the Central Jersey Walk to Defeat ALS this fall on Sunday, October 9th, this year in memory of Sonal Shah.  Whether or not you physically walk, your tax-deductible donation will go a long way to prevent, cure, and treat ALS. Any contribution, large or small, truly makes a difference.

Date: Saturday, October 7, 2017
