In its nineteenth year, East Woods School plans to make a difference in the fight against ALS, and our school is committed to doing its part. East Woods students and parents are joining the East Woods team to support The ALS Association's Walk to Defeat ALS®. Please help us Create A World Without ALS by either walking on September 26, 2020 virtually from home or by making a donation or both! Thank you for supporting us in this important and urgent cause as we raise vital awareness in the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease. Thank you for supporting us in this important and urgent cause as we raise vital awareness in the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease.
As we have learned more about ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, we have come to realize that it is probably one of the worst diseases of modern times. The deadly illness has no known cause and no cure. When a person is diagnosed, he or she is given only two to five years to live. During that time, the neurological disease gradually paralyzes its victims, robbing them of their ability to walk, speak, eat, and eventually breathe. And that's why we are walking – for those who can't, in an effort to make a difference for people living with this disease.
By walking and showing your support and/or making a one-time, tax-deductible donation, you can truly make a difference in the fight against ALS. Just visit our team online fundraising website listed below to make a donation. Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated, and remember, if you cannot donate and only walk, it is greatly appreciated too!
