The Second Annual Bill Wechsler ALS 5K Race/Walk to Find a Cure

by Maddie Cerulli
May 4, 2018

The Second Annual Bill Wechsler ALS 5K Race/Walk to Find a Cure is happening on Saturday, May 12th at 12pm at the Holliston Rail Trail.

Organized by members of the Holliston High School’s National Honor Society, this event is benefiting the ALS Association, a national non-profit organization working to lead global research for treating and curing Lou Gehrig’s Disease and encourage hope in those affected by ALS and their families. ALS, or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a “progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord” according to the ALS Association.

The Bill Wechsler ALS 5K Race/Walk to Find a Cure began in 2017 as a way to support beloved Holliston High School teacher Bill Wechsler who was recently diagnosed with ALS. Due to his incredible impact on all students and faculty as an inspiring mentor, members of HHS looked for an opportunity to channel his compassion and supportive nature into a community event.

To register for the Race/Walk, use this link http://events.eventzilla.net/e/walk-for-wex-2018-2138937242, which can also be found on the Facebook event page called “The Bill Wechsler ALS 5K Race/Walk to Find a Cure 2018”. Registration is $30 for adults and $25 for kids. Walk-ins are not guaranteed t-shirts. If you are unable to attend this year’s event but would like to contribute to the cause, any donation made here, http://webgny.alsa.org/site/TR?px=7754181&fr_id=13123&pg=personal, would be greatly appreciated.

i was diagnosed 2011. i was diagnosed with the bulbar form of ALS and was given one year to live. My symptoms progressed quickly. Soon i was having difficulty breathing, swallowing and even walking short distances. With the help of Natural Herbal Garden natural herbs I have been able to reverse my symptoms using diet, herbs, which i feel has made the most difference. The ALS natural formula immensely helped my condition, it reversed my ALS. my slurred speech. And then the inability to eat without getting choked, breathing, and coughing. gradually disappeared. Visit NATURAL HERBAL GARDENS via their official web-site www. naturalherbalgardens. com. I'm now playing golf again. and i turned 69 today. i am glad to get my life back DON'T GIVE UP HOPE!!!
