Ocean County Sheriff's Office Detective Phil Sickinger continues his courageous fight against ALS while continuing to be the loving, caring husband and father he is to his wife Diana and their daughters 4-year old Harper and 8-year old Olivia.
The "Walk to Defeat ALS" is happening Saturday May 2nd at First Energy Park in Lakewood. That's home of the Lakewood Blue Claws.
Event Director, Allison Walker, stopped by the Hawk studios for a little while to talk about the walk
After being challenged by many friends and co-workers, "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" crew was finally able to get everyone together for our official ALS Ice Bucket Challenge video on Thursday.
Pete Frates is the inspiration behind the "ALS Ice Bucket Challenge" craze. He was diagnosed with ALS back in 2011. Shortly thereafter, people started doing the Ice Bucket Challenge for different charities.
Pete wanted to do the challenge, but couldn't because of what ALS was already doing to HIS body.
Pete went on social media and asked people to do the "Ice Bucket Challenge"
This is truly an inspiring video.
His name is David Kurt McClain, and he is an ALS Victim.He cannot speak, eat or drink. He needs a special computer keyboard to communicate. He is paralyzed from the shoulders down.
Yet HE decided to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
He says in the video that as bad as his condition is, he still keeps a positive attitude
I'm not sure if his version of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge bothers me or not.
I think It is great the amount of money he is donating, but something doesn't seem right about it either. Maybe it's just me
