The Kennedy family invites you to join them for the Jimmy Kennedy Memorial Run to Cure ALS aka Squirrel Run XXII.
Jimmy “The Squirrel” Kennedy’s battle with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ended on April 6, 1997. He was 31 years old. For the past 21 years, the Squirrel Run has helped continue Jimmy’s fight against this wretched disease. Your participation is an important part of this effort. All proceeds go directly to ALS research.
Thank you for keeping our beloved Squirrel’s memory alive with your support, and for giving hope to so many others who live with ALS. It’s been an amazing run. Let’s keep it going!
