Al Schaffer, a former Ramona High School basketball coach and current San Diego State University volunteer basketball coach, is asking for help.
Mark Fisher, a member of the basketball coaching staff at SDSU has been diagnosed with ALS, short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and more commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Fisher is the son of SDSU Head Coach Steve Fisher.
Schaffer has entered a team, Coach Mark’s Team, as part of Aztecs Fighting ALS in the Walk to Defeat ALS on Sunday, Oct. 20, at De Anza Cove in Mission Bay. The walk starts at 9 a.m. with check-in beginning at 7:30 a.m. One can join Coach Mark’s Team and walk or send a pledge or donation.
For more information, contact Schaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org or go to The ALS Association Greater San Diego Chapter at webgsd.alsa.org.
