Hawaii Walk to Defeat ALS

Last week The ALS Association Golden West Chapter  announced that Alex joined the fight against ALS and  joined the #Walktodefeatals.

Alex is taking part in the Walk to defeat ALS on September 6th. One of the H50 crew members who take part in a number of charity walks, formed a team to represent the Hawaii Five-0 Ohana and support Alex. We are asking that you support Eric Uyeda *Pirate (@MrEricPiRaTe on twitter) who is walking with Alex and hoping to reach 50.00,00$.

On Twitter Eric Uyeda  said that when he’ll reach 1000$ of his target, he’ll take a pic of himself and Alex to celebrate! We are, of course,  hoping for lots more pics from the walk too 😀

If you do not know what this disease is:
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.

Some of you may know that Alex´s wife, Malia, lost her mother to this disease in 2011. How wonderful of Alex to show his support to her in this way. He is an awesome man, in more ways than one. Some of the Jones family also formed a team and you can even show your support by sponsoring them.

We have the link for donating on our sidebar too, for easier and faster access. Let us see what the Hawaii Five-0 and Alex fans can do to show support for this cause!

On twitter you can also use this #H50AlsWarriors tag to keep you up to date.

  6. Better than say that you love someone is showing that you love her everyday and in all ways. That’s my thought when i read this news.

    Another worthy cause for helping people from a terrible and fatal disease.
