An event exceeding our wildest dreams...
Thanks to two men filled with passion and determination...
First came Jim Berry, a friend of the Susan Mast ALS Foundation who was living with ALS. In 2017, Jim suggested we host a bike ride to raise funds for the Susan Mast ALS Foundation. We called the bike ride Pedaling for pALS. Thanks to Jim's hard work and passion, the event raised $100,000 for ALS families between 2017-2019.
In 2019, Jim's ALS progressed so he passed the baton to Dr. Phil Vanderlugt, who was passionate about helping others as his wife Sheri was also living with ALS.
Dr. Vanderlugt took Jim's baton and turned it into a torch raising $300,000 in 2 years!
Here we are today. Two men determined to give it their all – through hard work and networking – to create awareness and raise funds for people living with ALS in West Michigan!
We hope you will join us for PedALS 2021!
