Hello! We are running the 50th annual Falmouth Road Race this August for Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS). Compassionate Care has gone above and beyond supporting our family since our dad/uncle Joe was diagnosed with ALS last year. They provided us with equipment and more importantly supported us in navigating the minefield that is ALS care.
One of Joe’s main passions was running and it was a huge loss when that was no longer something he could do. His diagnosis and subsequent decline has really hammered home the luxuries of daily life we take for granted. Having the ability to run is a blessing, but so is being able to talk, eat, drink, breathe, and move independently. ALS is a terrible disease that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. Although our time left with our dad/uncle is extremely limited, we hope to honor him by running this race for him this summer. He always felt that there is no problem a good run couldn’t help fix, so we’re hoping to do some good by running this race for him.
