Last year we held the 4th Annual Run for Jeremy 5K at Harris County High School. The race was in honor of Jeremy Williams and was a huge success. We had over 500 runners and raised more than $12,000. None of this would have happened without the support of our sponsors. It’s time to begin thinking about this year’s event. We would like your support. We have many opportunities for you to be a part of this run. 

ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rapidly progressive neuromuscular disease that slowly halts muscle function. Currently, there is no cure. Most people with ALS die from respiratory failure, usually within 3 to 5 years from the onset of symptoms. The incidence of ALS is five times higher than Huntington’s disease and about half that of multiple sclerosis.

All the proceeds benefit the Emory ALS Center where Jeremy and many other patients with ALS receive care. The unique bond Jeremy and the family have formed with the doctors and other care providers at Emory has played a vital role in his care. Along with treating patients with ALS, the Center is also dedicated to finding a cure for the disease. According to their website, The Emory ALS Center is actively engaged in research ranging from basic inquiries into the causes of ALS to clinical trials of new drugs for people with ALS. Our desire continues for advanced treatments and ultimately a cure for this horrible disease. The money raised goes directly to the Emory ALS Center for further research and patient care.

Jeremy has not only influenced those he has coached with his determination and faithfulness but he has made an impression on those he faced on the field as he played college football in Memphis, TN. To his opponents he was known as the “Georgia Assassin.” As we Run for Jeremy in this race we are also wanting to Assassinate Lou Gehrig’s one Step at a time. Our goal is to continue the success of this race so that the Emory ALS Center can continue their work.

We would like for you to join us in the fight against ALS by sponsoring the 5th annual Run for Jeremy. This year the race will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2014. If you have questions, please contact us at RunForJeremy@yahoo.com or 706-325-2485.
Sincerely,
The Run for Jeremy Team
