On October 23, 2021, Ismail’s ALS Walk Team, Ismail’s Supporters, celebrated and honored Ismail and the many others affected by ALS by participating in the Virtual 2021 Golden West Chapter’s Walk to Defeat ALS. By doing so, they helped increase awareness of this terrible deadly disease and raised money that will be used to search for treatments and a cure.
Team members who live in Southern California joined in a fun and memorable day at Ventura Harbor Village, riding character pedal boats around the harbor, walking as a team around the restaurant and gift shop area, and enjoying lunch in celebration of Ismail at one of his favorite restaurants, The Greek, which overlooks the boats and the water. Others participated in raising awareness in many other locations throughout the United States and even overseas, including: Henderson, Nevada; Sea Cliff, New York; Bloomington, Illinois; the state of Vermont; Unicoi, Tennessee; and even Linz, Austria! Many relatives and friends who were unable to participate in formal events, sent their love, warm thoughts, and wishes for success.
Thanks to everyone’s efforts and generosity, the Ismail’s Supporters’ Walk Team surpassed it’s 2021 goal and has to date collected more than $4,000 that will be used to help people living with ALS and their families!
