Team Jay

Hi all! This is TEAM JAY'S second year participating in the Long Island Walk to Defeat ALS. While his disease is slowly progressing, we are happy to report Jay is still going strong and not giving up the fight!

The dollars we raised together last year helped make a difference in continuing the research and services benefiting people with ALS and their families. We would be thrilled if you can join Team Jay and walk with us again this year on September 23 at Eisenhower Park, on Long Island. Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by ALS. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause. Last year, with your help we exceeded our fundraising goal and together we can do it again in 2023!

Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries. 
That’s why we’re participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS. To bring hope. To raise awareness. To provide resources and services to families free of charge. To help unlock the mystery of ALS and find the key to treatments a cure. Will you join us? 


Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. 
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
