While all of you were watching Diane Von Furstenberg and Herve Ledger glisten on the New York Fashion Week runways I was doing my runway walk, all 7 Miles of it! More than 600 participants attended and walked in the 13th Annual “Cliff Walk®” for ALS family on the Cape Cod Canal, in Buzzard’s Bay. The day was beautiful after nearly 6 inches of rain the night before. Every year teams come out to honor their loved ones that are afflicted by the disease or have passed on. Every year they raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help find a cure.
The Annual “Cliff Walk®”, which is dedicated to the memory of Cliff Jordan, Jr. and Edward J. Sciaba, Sr., was initiated by Cliff himself before his death as a way to help support the research efforts of Dr. Robert Brown at Mass General Hospital. Jordan and Singersen have taken the event to the next level.
The event went on to honor the afflicted and celebrate the survivors and generally have a good time with a cook-out, band, dunk tank and general mayhem along. For all those who have bravely fought and support those with this disease, I salute you. If you want to participate or give please see this website: http://www.alsfamily.org/cliff.php
