Hello,


 


The ALS Association – DC/MD/VA is looking for
participants to run as a charity partner in the 36th Annual Marine
Corps Marathon
to be held October 30, 2011. ALS, commonly known as
Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal, neuromuscular disease that kills someone
every 90 minutes.


 


The ALS Association—DC/MD/VA Chapter is different than most
of the organizations involved with the Marathon, as we do not have a required
fundraising amount. We have a suggested fundraising minimum of $1,000.  In
order to help you reach that goal we provide you with your own webpage to tell
your story, share photos, update friends and family on your progress and raise
awareness.  The funds you raise will directly impact persons with ALS and
their families.





Additionally, we do not pay for
transportation or hotel for our runners, as we prefer to use all of the monies
received by the Chapter for our families and ALS specific research. Once a
participants application and registration fee is received, he/she will receive
a letter confirming his/her spot in the Marathon.


 


If you or someone you know would
be interested in running in the Marathon this year please contact me at ARobinson@ALSinfo.org or
301-978-9855 ext. 207
and I will be more than happy to send you a
registration form. We currently have 25 spots available so be sure and sign up
before they are filled. I have attached a flyer that you can forward or print
out.
