Description

Sister Act Silent Auction - In Support of the ALS Society of Canada - 2018 Walk for ALS
Proceeds from the Sister Act Silent Auction go to support families in Ontario living with ALS as well as fund research. Help us change the future for ALS!

Our Story

In 2004, after three family members were diagnosed with breast cancer, sisters Linda Longman and Susan Godin decided to create a fundraising event to raise money for breast cancer research. After eight years of fundraising, in 2011 they reached their goal of raising $100,000 for breast cancer.

In 2014, Susan's husband Dave was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease) is a terminal, progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed.

The WALK for ALS is an annual Canada-wide fundraiser for ALS. In 2015, Susan sent out an email to friends and family and formed a team, Godin's Gang, for the 2015 walk. They raised $19,000 that first year and then Susan and Linda decided to resurrect he Sister Act Silent Auction to try and exceed this amount for 2016. It was a resounding success and between the auction and other support raised through the Godin's Gang team members, another $38,000 was raised to help fund research and support families in Ontario living with ALS. Another $36,000 was raised in 2017 so this year they look forward to smashing their original goal of $100,000 for this great cause.

We would like to thank our friends and family for the amazing support you have provided (and continue to provide!).

Linda & Susan
