I am grateful to the Emory ALS Center and the ALS Association of Georgia for the care that my brother Don received, and for their support of my journey on the Appalachian Trail. All funds donated will benefit research for effective treatments and finding a cure for ALS.

The Emory ALS Center in Atlanta, GA is one of the largest clinical centers for ALS in the United States. The team approach to ALS care and research bridges multiple disciplines and departments. They are physicians, nurses, therapists, social workers, basic and clinical research scientists, students, fellows, and volunteers who work together, all with the same goal, but with different expertise and viewpoints. Their slogan, “Celebrate Life, Imagine a Cure,” is what they do every day.
