The 2009 JT Walk & Beach Party Goals:
1. Josh Thompson’s fight for a cure continues (along with all others affected by ALS) and with President Obama signing the "STEM CELL Research Legislation", now more than ever, research funds are needed.
2. Over 60 families in Hampton Roads fight daily for dignity and quality of life and they need our help! We can help them by donating to our local ALS Chapter.
3. Construct "Grommet Island Beach Park & Playground for every-BODY". As a result of Josh's illness, his friends and family realized that he would never be able to enjoy a day at the beach or play at the park with his two sons. Grommet Island has a unique design that will be enjoyed by those who are able-bodied and those who live with disabilities
