It was just five years ago that our friend Ed Rapp broke the news that he would retire from Caterpillar to focus on his fight against ALS. Immediately, friends and family rallied together, providing an overwhelming amount of support as Ed systematically laid out a plan to fight this disease.
For the past four years, we've been supporting Ed in the Walk to Defeat ALS. Last year’s Peoria Walk raised nearly $147K with 583 walkers to support local ALS patients in the areas of care services, research and advocacy. TEAM RAPP alone raised just over $38K with 143 walkers.
We're back again this year, and plan to be even stronger!
Please join us for this year's walk!
