4x4x48 Challenge Completed for ALS

Yes, you read that right, one of our Les Turner ALS family members, Alex, ran 4 miles, every 4 hours for 48 hours in honor of his friend and neighbor Hugh Stott, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2019.

“Running the 4x4x48 in honor of Hugh was an exhilarating accomplishment. I was blown away by the support I received to help raise awareness and funds for ALS,” shares Alex.

We are in awe of Alex’s impressive accomplishment and incredibly grateful for raising awareness and over $3,300 to support people living with ALS! Fundraise Your Way in support of our Les Turner ALS family like Alex>>
