If you're a runner, triathlete or other athlete, you know all about the day-to-day dedication it takes to go the distance. That same spirit of determination and perseverance is shared by thousands of ALS patients and their families in the United States. By competing on behalf of the Les Turner ALS Foundation, you will run for those who can't, and speak for those who don't have a voice. The money you raise will go toward research, patient services, and education.
