Team Golder

My family & friends join together for the Fifth Annual Alpha-One walk on the George Washington Bridge. Between all of us we raised over $2,000.00 for this cause last year. This year we plan on doing it again on Saturday, May 12th, 2012. The walk starts in Fort Lee, NJ (right over the GWB).
 
At this time I am asking if any of you can please join us in walking and/or help raise funds for this event.
 
My Dad was diagnosed with this disease many years ago. Many people haven't heard of this disease. In the beginning, I didn't either. But as I seen my Dad go through what he did and as I researched it, I realized this disease is just as serious and deadly as any other. My father's famous quote was "Because when you can't breathe nothing else matters". Never knew the true meaning to that till after he was gone. Because of it, he had to endure 2 lung transplants, rejections of these lungs and years of suffering. He always made the best and the most out of his life even with his illnesses. He tried to live as much of a normal life as possible. He was able to walk his daughters down the aisle and see his first granddaughter and grandson born. My father was extremely active with the Alpha-One Foundation and tried to be vocal and raise as much awareness as possible. Which is what I am trying to do. I am trying to make his memory live on.
 
Unfortunately, he succumbed to this disease on June 1, 2006. Shortly after, I was tested for this disease. I found out that I am a carrier and quite possibly carry this on to my children and their children in generations to come. Thats why I am trying to raise awareness and make the Alpha-One Foundation known and hopefully as with any other disease, find a cure.
 
I know right now this economy is hard on all of us but anything, ANYTHING will be appreciated. If you would like to write a check, you can make it payable to Alpha-1 Foundation and forward it to me or my cousin Liz Golder (all checks are tax deductible). Make the checks payable to Alpha-1 Foundation.
 
Thank you all for your time and support.
