OT: Lou Gehrigs Disease

Hey guys, I just have a quick story. I already posted this over at Blues talk and had good results so I thought I would share with you.

My name is Andrew, I'm 20, I play competitive hockey and played competitive baseball in high school. I currently play recreational baseball. My baseball coach, who is a great guy, has a brother in law that was diagnosed with ALS, or Lou Gehrig's Disease. It is a terrible neurological disease that essentially makes you a prisoner inside your own body. Anyway long story short, I have recently been given the task to try to promote their foundation's Facebook and Twitter accounts because they seem to not be getting any traction.


The foundation's name is the RASCALS Foundation which is an acronym for the Robert A. Stehlin Campaign against ALS. It is a 100% volunteer organization, all money raised goes directly into contributions for research or events such as trivia night and an annual run. It is a fairly new organization, only being in existence for less than 3 years.

The reason I am posting on the Blues boards is because he is a long time fan of them, even since developing this awful disease. He also is a big rock fan (Rush, Zeppelin, etc.) I am not asking for a donation, I am simply asking for you to like us at

www.facebook.com/rascalsfoundation

or follow us at

@rascals_found

on Twitter.

Thanks.

Everyone should do themselves a favor and research Jason Becker.
