Help create a world without ALS
SUPPORT US

GOAL

3 fellas run 12 hrs straight, for something they believe in.

A group of like minded folks are hitting the trails to help raise awareness and funds for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – a cause close to their hearts.

On April 23rd, 2017, Kyle Wallace, Jamie Waldron, and Jay Thompson will be running 12 hours, non-stop to raise funds for ALS, an illness commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease.

A 1km loop around beautiful Lakeside Park in Kingsville, Ontario will provide the backdrop to this year’s ALS Challenge. We chose this location since it is close to many of our main supporters, the Pelee Island Winery is right around the corner for a quick ‘jaunt’ to the after party, and it allows us to open up this event to anyone of any physical ability to come out and join in. Also, while there’s the core group of runners aiming for specific distances within the 12hr time-frame, the public is welcome to participate in any amount of loops of their liking!

All proceeds will go towards Windsor-Essex County ALS Society.

ALS is a progressive and fatal neurodegenerative disease that, in its late stages, completely paralyzes sufferers. ALS is not a rare disease. About 1,500-2,000 Canadians have ALS, and about 450 new cases occur every year.

In Memory

Tommy Wallace

My father loved to be active. He loved to walk and enjoy the outdoors. Put simply, he loved to be in motion.

When he was diagnosed with ALS, he had to put aside his love for motion and the outdoors as his body slowly shut down, and the disease eventually bound him to a wheelchair.

When my dad went for nature walks, he would jump on the Chrysler Canada Greenway trail. Its close proximity to our home, and its stretch of open walking track allowed him to do what he most loved often.

In honour of my father’s life, his love for the outdoors and physical activity, we have chosen to run the Greenway trail to raise funds for the Windsor-Essex County ALS Society, an organization that was there for my father when he was sick.

Through this run, we hope to give back to the not-for-profit organization with funds to supply the society with some of the small things that helped make a big difference in my father’s life while he was ill.

We also hope to raise awareness about the Windsor-Essex ALS Society, so the organization and its caregivers can continue to make the lives of those with ALS a little easier, and contribute to research that leads to a cure.

Kyle Wallace

Runners

Jamie Waldron

I run for all sorts of reasons, but mostly it’s to push my own personal limits. Be that distance, endurance, or simply my own threshold of pain. It gives me a great deal of satisfaction to run for those who cannot.

Kyle Wallace

Sometimes when I’m outside running or cycling or just playing and moving, I feel so grateful for the ability to do so. I remember my dad losing his ability to move his muscles due to ALS, and how it affected him. I’m excited to use that ability to move to help give back to the community that helped dad.

Jay Thompson

I run to see where my feet can take me. I run to spend great moments with friends and to embrace the challenges that each trail can bring. I run because I can and because life is fickle, I may not be able to run tomorrow so I run to embrace the moment. Most importantly I run to feel the morning sun and the sweat on my brow and to channel all of life’s simplicity in to one defined moment.
