LAST CHANCE TO DONATE FOR ALS-ONE FALMOUTH ROADRACE

Posted by on Aug 20, 2016 in Rich Graziano | 0 comments

Last day before the Falmouth Road Race for ALS. Thanks to all who have made a donation and it’s not too late to contribute. All help is very much appreciated!

Please help me in the fight against ALS with a donation.  I’m running the Falmouth Road Race this Sunday on the ALSONE IRON KNIGHTS team.   My personal goal is $20,000. Please take a moment and donate what you can.  Please watch the inspiring video about Kevin Gosnell.  He was diagnosed with ALS last May and passed away last week. He founded ALSONE to get various ALS fundraisers and organizations to work together to reduce redundant efforts and get results for a cure quicker.  Kevin’s sons go to the same high school, Boston College High School, as my son Nick.  Kevin is one of my best friends, Bob DiMartino’s, best friend.  Kevin was the captain of Bob’s football team at Framingham State.  Anyone who talks about Kevin , especially Bob, speaks about him being a man for others, a leader, generous, humble, loving, and an amazing thinker. Please help continue the fight against ALS.  Much progress has been made with ALS yet more must be done – this is beatable. Help our team continue Kevin’s fight and legacy.  Thank you-
