Fighting Irish - Team Doran

WOAH!  It's 2017 already!???!!!

It is another year to get together and remember the most amazing man in the world - Pat Doran!!

I first walked to support the Defeat of ALS in 2008 when my father was diagnosed with ALS. With the diagnosis of this hideous disease, my family grew closer together in support of our mom and the love the our father. It is an honor to continue walking and raising money for the ALS Association in true hopes that a cure will be found and no one else will ever have to suffer the way my dad did and all those who currently are.

Join the Doran family this November and sign up as walker! You can also be a Virtual Walker, where you raise money online for the team even if you are unable to be there the day of the walk. Or you can donate! Choose the option that best suits you!

Do you remember the ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE from 2014???

I WALK to make a difference. I RAISE money to make a change. I am VOCAL to recruit. I CRY becuase I'm sad. I SMILE because that's what my dad would want. I ASK you to DONATE and WALK with me.

My father passed away 3 days after Christmas in 2009 after being diagnosed with ALS February 2008. I miss my father more than words can say, and it is my honor to walk this walk every year to help do my part. I don't want anyone else to suffer through this horrible, awful disease.

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.
