A Touching Reason To Come To Zumbathon Tomorrow

With a listener’s permission, I would like to share a note she wrote to me about why raising money for ALS through our Zumbathon means so much to her.

Amy writes: “I want to extend my sincere gratitude to the staff of 94.3 The Point for lending your hand and participating in the Zumbathon this weekend.

My dad, Rusty, was diagnosed with ALS in December 2008. Now, four years later, my dad is no longer with me. He died at the age of 55. ALS took his life in August 2009. I don’t expect anyone to understand how painful it is to go through what ALS patients and their families endure every day, but I can assure you it’s no pain you could describe.

Today I still find myself crying, wishing I could call my dad or even just walk around the block with him. I know right now that is in my past but a cure for ALS is in my future.

Thank you for helping support the fight against ALS. You can help make a difference in the lives of many people and put an end to suffering as we continue battling this monster of a disease. Too many young people are losing their lives. ”

It’s not too late to come to the Zumbathon tomorrow morning at Convention Hall in Asbury Park and have a morning and afternoon of fun and lunch with celebrity Zumba instructor Kass Martin. Sign up at
