If anyone else wants to join us, we are meeting at Oyster Creek Park on Hwy 6 in Sugarland at 9:15am in the morning.
We raised some money and I am excited to support my very good friend.

I hope you will join us. Right now its just Heather & I and some of her friends from work. It will be fun, not too early in the morning (10am I think), only about 2.5 miles or so. We can even grab lunch after! And, you can bring the kids.

I have set up the fundraising page for the event - so anyone who is participating can either provide this link for donations, or can join our team "Team Spark for a Cure" and any donations they receive will be routed to the team.

I hope you will consider participating. Its such a terrible disease to suffer through and it would mean a lot to me and to my friend Merle Beth to have your support.

Hi everyone. I have a very good friend, my best friend for many years, Merle Beth, who suffers from ALS. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that strikes an American every 90 minutes. And, every 90 minutes, we lose another American to it. People with ALS lose their ability to walk, speak, swallow, and breathe, yet in most cases the mind remains unaffected. ALS can strike anyone at any time. It has been extremely painful to watch my best friend go through this pain, agony and loss of function at the very young age of 50. Just this week she had to be fitted for a feeding tube because her muscles work in a way that allows her to chew food.

I plan to walk this event in honor of Merle Beth, and to raise as much as I can in donations to search for a cure. This is a 3 mile walk (details through the link below) and I would love for you to join me in honoring my friend and raising money and awareness of this disease.

Please let me know if you can join me. You can bring your family & friends, your dogs and kids, etc. It will be a chance for us to get together, get a bit of exercise, and do something a bit bigger than ourselves.

Here is the link:
www.alsa-houston.org/walk.php

I will also post the link on the Houston resources board.

Jane
