You Hit it, you get it, gates open

This team has been created for my daughter’s Papa Richard Gilmore. 

If you aren’t lucky enough to know him, I will do my best to describe him to you. 

He’s the kind of man that makes you want to be a better person, he’s the guy that smiles even at people that are rude to him. 

He’s the kind of man that has a positive attitude and outlook on everything no matter what he is going through. 

Last year he got diagnosed with ALS, hearing the news and not knowing a lot about it I started researching. The information I did read made me incredible sad that there is not a cure and how could this happen to such an amazing human being. To the guy that had so many dreams of owning a food cart and going ocean fishing and ALS has changed his life and retirement plans. 

Before ALS, he loved camping, umpiring, golfing, hunting, fishing, spending time at the coast and Fishermans Bend. 


There are days, I’m sad and angry to see how ALS has affected Richard, but the one thing that remains is Richard’s positive attitude through it all. 



So our family, all of Richard’s friends and everyone that knows him is so proud to know him and we will continue to fight and hope for a cure! .
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!
