What a fantastic turnout!
We are soooooo grateful for all the wonderful support we received for the 2006 ALS Walk4Life! Through your amazing efforts the "Ask about Aimee" team raised in excess of $40,000 (wow!) for ALS research and patient services. The Walk itself was a glorious celebration of life, and we feel so fortunate to have shared it with so many who are near and dear to our family. Thank you for all your efforts that made this Walk4Life a smashing success!
