Michael Lopez Jr. Celebration Of Life - Saying Good By to All American "Magic Mike"

★ 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”! ♥

This dude is uber motivational! This video is very touching and I think it's important that everyone who participates in the ice bucket challenge takes the time to watch this and understand exactly why we are participating in this viral video phenomena. See the Cash for Gold Online location that donates to help and support those with ALS.

Cure for ALS's curator insight, August 11, 12:28 PM

Hamilton, August 11, 2014 The 5th Annual Run for Jeremy 5K Run/Walk & 1 Mile Fun Run takes place Saturday, October 4, 2014 at Harris County High School in Hamilton, GA. Run for Jeremy is a 5k race that was started in 2010 in honor of Jeremy Williams, former football coach of Greenville High School. The event has raised more than $45,000 for the Emory ALS Center. Friends of the Williams family are the organizers of this event that brings out the entire community. Runners from all over Georgia, others from Alabama, pay tribute to Jeremy and others who are living with or have lost their lives to ALS.

 

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, can strike anyone and is universally fatal. It slowly takes away the ability to move, speak, swallow, and ultimately breathe. The average life span after diagnosis is 2 to 5 years.

 

Jeremy Williams, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2008. During his years playing football, Jeremy Williams was known as the “Georgia Assassin” and this community event unites Coach Williams’ supporters to “Assassinate Lou Gehrig’s one Step at a time.” Proceeds from the event benefit the Emory ALS Center in Atlanta, GA, where Jeremy receives his care. Led by Dr. Jonathan Glass, 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. The team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses, therapists, and dieticians care for both the physical and emotional needs of our patients and their families. The focus of the patient model is on independence and quality of life through state-of-the-art intervention.

 

Race morning will begin with the 1 Mile Fun Run on the track and starting at 8:30am. The 5k race will follow, starting at 9:00am. Each participant will receive a t-shirt and great post-race food, entertainment, and family fun. Online registration, and all event information is available at www.runforjeremy.com

TERANCE MATHIS HOSTS 2ND ANNUAL CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC FOR ALS

Cure for ALS's curator insight, August 11, 12:12 PM

Suwanee, GA, August 11, 2014– Terance Mathis, former All-American and Pro Bowl wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons is partnering once again with Cure for ALS to host his 2nd annual Celebrity Golf Classic on Monday, September 15, 2014. The title sponsor for the event which will take place at the Alpharetta Athletic Club in Alpharetta, GA, is ChoicesToYou.com.

 

“As I have become more involved in the past couple of years with this cause, I realize that nobody is immune to getting ALS. It literally can strike anyone, and the fact that so many professional athletes have been diagnosed really has hit home with me,” says Mathis. “I know that it could be me fighting this disease.”

 

ALS is a neuromuscular disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord. There is no cure and the average life span after diagnosis is 2-5 years. It takes away the ability to move, speak, swallow, and ultimately breathe, and it can strike anyone.  

The funds raised from the tournament will benefit the Emory ALS Center. Located in Atlanta, 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 is dedicated to performing groundbreaking research in the laboratory to discover treatments and a cure.

 

Golfers in threesomes will be paired with celebrity team captains. Joining Terance Mathis as celebrity captains are Atlanta Falcons favorites Jesse Tuggle, Ruffin Hamilton, Michael Haynes, Gerald Riggs, Jamal Anderson, Chris Mohr, and Keith Brooking. Other football greats playing are Greg Lloyd, DJ Shockley, Nate Wayne, Brian Jordan, and Carl Pickens. Stars from the MLB playing in the tournament are Kenny Lofton and Fred McGriff.

 

Registration/player check-in begins at 8:30am for the scramble format tournament. 10:00am is the shotgun start, lunch will be provided, and there will be fun contests on the course. An awards reception will follow the round, where prizes will be presented to contest winners and the Top 3 Teams.

 

All information including links to online registration and online donating can be found at CureForALS.com.
