Walk & Silent Auction
John Jaeckel and Don Sheehan have been fighting the battle of ALS for 10 years. In the eyes of ALS, this is unheard of. The positivity, strength, and courage these men have is the reason that nothing can take them down!
It’s been a very unique summer to say the least! As COVID seems to have changed everything, it inevitably has changed the Jaeckel/Sheehan ALS Walk. We have been monitoring as much data as we can and have been working with Sawyer county public health to make the most informed decisions possible.
The good news is that at this point we are still planning on having our event on the morning of August 22! This year’s event will look different though. Sadly, we had to make the decision to not have our traditional breakfast and our large group walk. We also are planning on requiring masks for the event and having distanced one-way traffic flow through the Narthex area as people register, pick up their t shirts, bid on auction items and make their donations. These plans are fluid as we may have to make changes as this disease doesn’t always cooperate!
We did consider not having our event given all of the challenges but decided against it. As COVID has ravaged fundraising for all nonprofits, ALS patients are still being diagnosed every day and their needs are even greater as this disease can be a fatal challenge for us. We are excited to see you all in masks from a safe social distance! Thanks to you all! May God keep us all safe and well!
