Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good Bye to All American "Magic Mike" RIP: 1/13/2013 - In Loving Memory of Michael - Forever in Our Hearts #19

★ Final Farewell To Mike Lopez Jr.★

It is hard to imagine anyone who followed football in Oregon in the 1980′s not remembering his name. It struck fear into many an opponent and his #19 was called and shouted often at Oregon State where he did some legendary things. He was one of the greatest athletes to every come out of Oregon and was an All American and named Gatorade Player Of The Year. The 1981 Graduate of Aloha was truly special in every way and was known by those closest to him as “Magic Mike”! ♥

In Theaters TODAY! Find a location near you NOW! The Gleason Movie- Courage*Love*Triumph*Inspiration* | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it
At the age of 34, former New Orleans Saints defensive back Steve Gleason was diagnosed with ALS and given a life expectancy of two to five years. Weeks later, Gleason found out his wife, Michel, was expecting their first child. A video journal that began as a gift for his unborn son expands to chronicle Steve’s determination to get his relationships in order, build a foundation to provide other ALS patients with purpose, and adapt to his declining physical condition—utilizing medical technologies that offer the means to live as fully as possible. Gleason is not only about Steve’s resilience but also the complications of love between fathers and sons, and husbands and wives, in the face of a devastating illness. The film is bolstered by its subject’s unwavering candor and surprising humor. Told through the lens of an NFL icon, the film grapples with the nature of heroism as Steve recasts his legacy into something quite antithetical to—but no less inspirational than—his on-field shows of strength and dominance.

2016 Fiesta 5k/15k Challenge Proceeds benefit  ALS Center at Emory University

2016 Fiesta 5k/15k Challenge Proceeds benefit  ALS Center at Emory University | #ALS AWARENESS #LouGehrigsDisease #PARKINSONS | Scoop.it

All fundraising and donation proceeds will benefit the ALS Center at Emory University. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) can strike anyone; in fact it happens to 15 people each day in the U.S. The average life expectancy is only 2-5 years from the time of diagnosis. ALS slowly takes away the ability to move, speak, swallow, and ultimately breathe. There is no cure for ALS so there are no survivors to tell their stories. For the 10th year the Emory ALS Center is the beneficiary of 100% of the proceeds from the FIESTA 5k/15k Challenge. The Emory ALS Center is one of the largest clinical centers for ALS in the United States. The Center provides true multidisciplinary care for patients and families with ALS and related disorders. Emorys physician-scientists continue to perform groundbreaking research, including developing surgical methods for delivery of therapeutics to the spinal cord. They search tirelessly for a cure for this devastating disease, focusing on basic mechanisms of motor neuron degeneration, genetics of ALS, and new experimental treatments. As the name suggests, the FIESTA 15k/5k Challenge is not your ordinary race. With two distances, we draw causal runners and walkers for the 5k and endurance runners for the 15k. The FIESTA 15k/5k Challenge brings entire families out for a morning of health & fitness, awareness for ALS, community outreach, and a celebration of life. Thank you for your generous support and for joining us to Celebrate Life...Imagine a Cure If you would like to volunteer or register for the FIESTA 5k/15k Challenge visit FiestaRunGA.com .
