We are reaching out to our friends, family and community organizations asking for your support as we raise awareness and funds for Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS). As you know, this devastating, fatal neurodegenerative disease took our beloved Son/ Uncle , Robby, so this urgent cause is near and dear to us. Won't you please join our effort to make a difference to Create a World Without ALS?
Our family has formed a walk team, "TEAM SENECAL" for the 2020 LONG ISLAND WALK TO DEFEAT ALS ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th (VIRTUAL WALK)
If you would like to join our efforts to help us reach our fundraising goal, any contribution is appreciated and may be made online athttp://webgny.alsa.org/goto/TeamSenecal2020 or mailed to the ALS Association, Greater New York Chapter at 42 Broadway, Suite 1724, New York, NY 10004 or handed directly to us in person.

Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
