Friends of Tony is a team formed in support and honor of Tony “Dogbomb” Barrett, a member of the anthropomorphic community who was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord. It slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow, and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis. The Friends of Tony are dedicated to aiding the ALS association in their goal of bringing hope, raising awareness, and providing resources and services to families affected by ALS free of charge.
Join the Friends of Tony as they walk in memory of Dobgomb on April 18, 2020 at the Raleigh ALS Walk hosted by the ALS Association. Check-in is at 08:30 AM, and the walk starts at 10:00 AM. The walk length is 2 miles. Fursuits are very much welcome!
