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

by Maddie Cerulli

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, 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,, would be greatly appreciated. Check out the Facebook event for more information, and please feel free to email with any questions!

My Wife was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) when she was 72 years old 4 years ago. The Rilutek (riluzole) did very little to help her. The medical team did even less. Her decline was rapid and devastating. Her arms weakened first, then her hands and legs. Last year, a family friend told us about Organic Herbal clinic and their successful ALS TREATMENT, we visited their website www. organicherbalclinic. com and ordered their ALS Formula, i am happy to report the treatment effectively treated and reversed her Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), most of the symptoms stopped, she is able to walk and eat well, sleep well and exercise regularly., she is pretty active now and her attitude is extremely positive.

My ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) symptoms started out with a "foot drop" on my left foot. From there my left leg lost all muscle tone and the entire left leg muscles are gone. Also my fingers and thumbs "contract" at times. Left arm loses muscle tone too. My family doctor said there is no cure for ALS, I was just living unhappy life till I saw a blog talking about Best Health Herbal Centre. So many people said positive things about their herbal product which I don't believe at first. I showed my daughter what I saw online about their product and my daughter decided we shall give it a try. Few days later she purchased two bottle of ALS herbal remedy which they said I will use for only six weeks. My life changed automatically after six weeks of applying the herbal remedy as instructed. All my symptoms was terminated completely and am now living ALS FREE .. All Thanks to Best Health Herbal Centre for their good work in people's life …For more details about their herbal product visit their Homepage www .besthealthherbalcentre. c om

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!!!
