The A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation's 21st Annual "Cliff Walk" for A.L.S Fundraiser, Sponsored by Superior Rail & Iron Works, will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2017.
This annual event is held in loving memory of Cliff Jordan, Jr., Edward J. Sciaba, Sr. and Janice Ferrara.
WE HAVE A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT TO MAKE:
Due to construction at Buzzards Bay Park, this year’s Cliff Walk will be held in a beautiful spot on the opposite end of the Cape Cod Canal at the DCR Scusset Beach Reservation!
Same event. Same great.cause. New location.
Supporters are invited to spend the day on the beautiful Cape Cod Canal for a full day of fun and fundraising, featuring activities for the whole family, including raffles, prizes, BBQ, games, a balloon man, face painting, tug of war, bean bag toss, a playground for kids, live musical entertainment by the "Real Deal" and a scenic 7-mile walk along the Canal!
The A.L.S. Family Tree and Brick Walkway remain in the Buzzards Bay Park, and we will be holding the traditional brick placing ceremony at 9:30AM (Main Street, Buzzards Bay)
We are excited to take on this adventure with you at this great new location! Bring your walking shoes, an appetite and prepare for a great time!
Proceeds benefit the many in-house patient programs of the A.L.S. Family Charitable Foundation as well as research efforts.
A diagnosis of ALS is one of the worst things that can happen to a person. They lose their health, independence and financial security. And as we know all too well, when one family member is diagnosed with ALS, they all live it.
That is where we come in. Our Foundation helps in a way that these families really need. We help keep the lights and heat on for the family; we help send children of our patients to college; we help families take what often times is their last vacation together to make some wonderful memories; we take away the fear of not having enough to make the holidays joyous and back to school shopping fun; and we make sure that caregivers are able to take time to take care of themselves, and so much more.
And of course, we also fund research efforts to find better treatment options and a cure.
