The 18th Annual "Cliff Walk" For A.L.S. Sponsored by Superior Rail & Iron Works Inc. held on Sunday, September 7, 2014 raised record breaking funds for the Foundation! It was an exhilarating day along a sunny Cape Cod Canal with hundreds of walkers raising over $200,000 and covering 7 miles with lenny w_famcropa common goal; helping patients and finding a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis(ALS).

We couldn't be happier with the turnout, 1,500 people, (our most ever!) and impressive fundraising efforts from all the teams. These much needed funds will benefit patient services throughout New England as well as research headed by the following: ALS Therapy Development Institute and Dr. Robert Brown at UMass Medical Center.

It was truly a full day of fun and fundraising, featuring fun activities for the whole family including face painting, moon bounces, basket raffles, tug of war competition, lunch, and even live music performed by South Shore Rave and The Moonlighters.

Foundation Board Secretary David Philips emceed the event, while Jean Jordan spoke to the crowd about the legacy of Cliff Jordan, Jr., Edward J. Sciaba, Sr., and Janice Ferarra, in whose memory our walk is held.

We were overjoyed to welcome Taber Academy Junior Class Dean Kenny Ackerman and 130 staff & juniors as volunteers and fundraising participants. Mr. Ackerman had lost his mother-in-law to ALS years ago and wanted to honor her memory by contributing to our cause and spending the day with us.

Once again Todd Cardeiro and his teammates from the Wareham 99 Restaurant did not disappoint and happily and professionally wowed all participants by donating and serving seafood chowder and minestrone soup. (We also served a BBQ lunch of hotdogs and hamburgers). 

Special thanks to Rick Giglio of the Wareham Stop & Shop, for all of his efforts in coordinating the donation of water, hotdogs, chips and soda, ensuring that our larger than ever before crowd was well taken care of.

 We are so grateful for the continued and generous support of our event sponsors Lenny and Tony Ferrara of Superior Rail & Iron Works and our new Gold Sponsors at Suffolk Red & Blue Foundation.
