Walk to Defeat ALS 2011

“But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.”
(Psalm 71:14)
We had a very beautiful day and a successful walk that raised $3,365.00 and counting for Team RAY'S HOPE. Overall the walk raised over $500,000. All donations go to those living with ALS for support services and for much needed continued Research. Thank you for your Support!!!!
May you all be Blessed with Health and Happiness over this Holiday Season!
Ray and Lisa

We have been walking to support the ALS Association since November of 2005. The photos below are from 2008, 2009, 2010 and yesterday. I didn't have a digital camera or even know how to upload photos until then, LOL.

Ray's HOPE are those children in the photo. I am not just talking about his own two, Kyle who is nine and Katie who is four. I am talking about the hope that one of those children will some day find the cure for ALS. Maybe one of those children will find the CAUSE of ALS. And hopefully none of those children will ever have to endure the pain and suffering of having ALS or having someone they love have ALS.

Our goal when we formed the team in Honor of Ray Gould was to RAISE MONEY, RAISE AWARENESS AND RAISE HOPE. That goal has become stronger with each year.

Hope is a thing with feathers - by Emily Dickenson

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
