Inspired by Ravens OJ Brigance and others to fight ALS


Like many Harford County residents, I was thrilled that the Ravens won the Super Bowl this year. However, for me, one of the most important parts of this event was the attention given to OJ Brigance and his fight against ALS, better known to many as Lou Gehrig's Disease. Having lost a very good friend, Dave Simmons, to this dreadful disease, I am hoping that many people will find out more about this condition and make charitable contributions to organizations fighting to find detection, prevention and a cure for this illness.

One of the ways in which this can be done is through participation in the second annual Dave Simmons ALS Golf Tournament, to be held at the Wetlands Golf Course in Aberdeen on May 11. Please visit the website, or visit Dave Simmons ALS Golf Tournament on Facebook for further details.
