Last year’s Ski to Defeat ALS sold out two weeks before the event. Based on early predictions, it will sell out again. If you do not sign up immediately, it is likely you will miss out on an epic event.
While I have my limitations, I can still get around in my specialized van to meet with various organizations and promote the Ski to Defeat ALS. Like last year, I am the event’s honorary chair.
Since last April, I have experienced a steady decline in my condition. I currently have caregivers to dress me and prepare meals. Family and friends assist me in the evening hours regarding meals and bed time.
Yesterday, I went in for my quarterly evaluation and the good news is that I will make it to April 13 and beyond.
At the Ski to Defeat ALS event this year, I would like to gather up everyone I have ever skied with in the last 58 years and do the First Annual Fred Noble Last Run. In order to participate, you will need to sign up for Team Fredinator immediately.
The cost is $75 if you do not have a Mt. Hood Meadows Season Pass and just $25 if you do have one — this is an all-inclusive day of celebration on the mountain, and includes food, drinks, entertainment and more. You will also need to fundraise $150, but I can assure you, that’s easy.
If you cannot attend any donation big or small is greatly appreciated.
To register for the event, or to make a donation, please click the links below. If you have questions, or would like to connect with The ALS Association directly, please call Meagan Lancaster, fundraising manager, at 800.681.9851×2.
Please forward this on to anyone I may have missed. And know, unlike true Fredinator-style, everyone must register to get into the event. It’s the rules and it will honestly make a big difference in the fight against ALS!
