7 miles closer to a cure!
Thanks for Everything! The 16th Annual “Cliff Walk” Was a Great Success!
Despite some early morning clouds and drizzles on Sunday, September 9, 2012, we were happy to welcome 850 participants and raise over $120,000 at our 16th Annual “Cliff Walk” for A.L.S. Fundraiser, sponsored by Superior Rail & Iron Works, Inc., and we ended the day with a beautiful double rainbow!
We were so blessed this year to have world renowned harpist Cormac De Barra play while we read the names of those we love that have fought or are fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease, making those moments even more poignant and profound. Our dear friend Tom O’Neill also wrote a new song for us entitled Time, a companion to Keep The Light On, and both were performed by Cecilia Colucci and the Perry Rossi Orchestra. Special thanks as well to Jamie Heywood, for bringing us hope for the future and reminding us of our past, and what this event, foundation and fight is all about.
Our Highest Fundraisers were; Team Bobby Murray, Team David, Team Georgios and the winner’s in the Children’s Fundraising Contest were; Serena McMahon, Darien Allen and Daniel Kulda. Thank you to our winner’s and everyone who participated!!! We couldn't do it without you. As always, proceeds benefit our in-house patient programs and scientific research.
Please show your thanks for our supporters and sponsors by visiting their websites and businesses!
For those we love, for those we lost, we walk.
In loving memory of Cliff Jordan, Jr., Edward J. Sciaba, Sr. and Jan Ferrara
