Congratulation’s to Les Turner ALS Foundation!

Congratulation’s to Les Turner ALS Foundation!

This past Friday, the students at Highland Park High School voted on this year’s Charity Drive recipient. The charities on the ballot were Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Friends United for Juvenile Diabetes Research, and Les Turner ALS Foundation. At the end of the day, Les Turner ALS Foundation was announced the winner! 

First you lose your ability to speak. Then, your ability to move. Next, you lose your ability to breathe and finally, your life. Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with ALS, known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. There is no cure for ALS, and once diagnosed, patients typically only live three to five years. ALS is not defined by age, race or gender – anyone can be diagnosed and what is especially cruel is that you are robbed of your ability to move while your brain remains completely intact. We at the Les Turner ALS Foundation are working every day to change that. We provide free services to over 400 patients and their families and children in the Chicagoland area and help fund two research labs at Northwestern Medicine. Your support allows us to serve all in need and find a cure so that someday “ALS Survivor” is a reality.

24 Hour Run 2014

We are exciting to bring on our 2014 Junior Coordinators: Dylan Kahn and Lindsay Wasserman! 

We are excited for Charity Drive 2014! Who is ready to raise $30,000?! We are! 

24 Hour Run Livestream!

Catch every moment with live coverage! Will launch tomorrow at 11:15 a.m. It’s go time!


     Due to a hopefully TEMPORARILY policy change, the 24 Hour Run only has until the end of THIS WEEK to reach its goal of $30,000 to benefit Children’s Oncology Services INC. 
        For those unaware what Children’s Oncology Services INC is, it is a non-for-profit summer camp for children and teenagers battling cancer. If you have ever been to camp, you are sure of its meaningful impact on an individual’s life.
        In spirit of this, PLEASE take a minute of your time to do a good deed today. Visit select the “Donate” tab. Every dollar gets the Highland Park High School’s track & field team closer to its goal of $30,000 for such a worthy cause. Your donation means the world to Children’s Oncology Services INC. 
            See you all Friday for the 24 Hour Run, and thank you for your continued support!
