ALS Ride For Life

Sunday, May 14 at 3 PM on the GWU campus.

Christopher Pendergast was diagnosed with ALS twenty-four years ago. A former teacher for over thirty years, he chose to fight.

In an effort to build ALS awareness and raise financial support in search of a cure, Chris founded a non-profit, volunteer-run organization called ALS Ride For Life. For the past 20 years, Chris has traveled in his motorized wheelchair, along with other patients, families, and friends from Lou Gehrig’s memorial in Yankee Stadium either to Washington, DC or across Long Island.

To date, he has raised over $7M for research, patient care, education and awareness of the horrific disease that took the life of New York Yankee legend, and our own Phi Delta Theta brother, Lou Gehrig. Chris has made this ride for a cure his second career. He is on a ventilator now but soldiers on. He is one amazing man!

This year starting on May 4, Chris journeys to Washington, DC and will make stops at the University of Maryland in College Park and George Washington University in Washington, DC en route to the United States Capitol.

While at GWU, come out to meet Chris and welcome him to the Nation’s Capital on Sunday, May 14 at 3 PM and show your support in the fight against ALS.
