2012 Marin Memorial Day Races -- Lori Cohen
Note: See below for clothing benefit on May 17th
Tamalpa runner and friend, Lori Cohen, was diagnosed with Bulbar ALS in June, 2010. This form of the disease has attacked the motor neurons of Lori's tongue, mouth and throat, which makes speaking, swallowing and eating a challenge. Fortunately, her lungs and limbs are still strong so is able to continue her running and exercise. Unfortunately, Western Medicine currently has no treatment.

Lori and her family are battling the disease with courage and hope and with alternative treatments like accupuncture, biofeedback, meditation, and diet. She is also involved in a clinical drug trial through the Forbes Norris MDA/ALS Research and Treatment Center at California Pacific Medical Center ( The drug treatments began in April and will continue for six months.

Lori is hopeful that "someday I can put this behind me and move forward in my life with a stronger mind and body." In the meantime, alternative treatments and drug trials are expensive. Tamalpa runners will donate some of the proceeds from the Don Ritchie 5K to help Lori and her family with these expenses. In the spirit of Don, please consider making an additional donation to help a fellow Tamalpan, runner, and friend fight this terrible disease.
