After all that Jerry has given to me and my family, I’m ready to do my small part to say thank you for the years of inspiration. I've signed up for the Disney Marathon 2021! With Jerry providing my motivation, once I get started, I know I’ll finish the race. It’s a lofty goal but I have the Team TOMO fighting spirit!
Please see VIRTUAL Disney Marathon tab on Menu above for more information about the run.
At the same time, we want to raise funding for the ALS Association to help patients fight this terrible disease. We need your help to achieve our audacious goal of raising $26,200 to support the ALS Association Florida Chapter. Whatever amount you can contribute would be forever appreciated.
The vast majority of the donated funds will help patients pay for needed services, fund basic disease research, and raise public awareness about ALS. The ALS Association Florida Chapter has received the highest rating for Accountability & Transparency from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator. Please see the ALS Association Florida Chapter website for additional information and Annual Audits.
For all of Jerry’s family, friends, and associates, please help us reach our goal!! With your support, we can:
Run Down ALS!

Established in 1987, The ALS Association Florida Chapter is fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on all fronts, or as we like to say, “Covering all the bases for people living with ALS in Florida." We provide patient programs, advocate on behalf of patients with our government leaders, create awareness of the disease, and fund research. In addition, the Chapter provides financial support to our statewide multidisciplinary ALS clinics and research facilities, enabling them to increase patient care.
As the preeminent ALS organization, The ALS Association leads the way in research, care services, public education, and public policy — giving help and hope to those facing the disease.
The Florida Chapter is one of more than 39 nationwide chapters providing comprehensive patient services and support to the ALS community. The mission of The ALS Association is to lead the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy, while also empowering people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.
With more than 1,600 people living with ALS in the state of Florida at any given time, we could not do what we do without the ongoing generosity and support of others. From the smallest donation to the largest gift, donors touch the ALS community with hope for the future. This terrible disease knows no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries. It can strike anyone at any time. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes, someone dies from ALS. Time isn't on the side of those afflicted. Fighting ALS is a full-time job. And we will not quit until there is a treatment and cure.
