Chelsea Senior Living Director’s NYC Marathon Run With A Purpose

  • 0
  • 1 min to read

(Fanwood, NJ)—Chelsea Senior Living Regional Operations Director Paul Gedbaw has been an avid runner for twenty years. But his participation in this year’s New York City Marathon has special significance.

“In April my good friend Bob passed away from ALS,” he says. “That’s how I got hooked up with Team ALS.”

Gedbaw will run with Team ALS in the Marathon, one of the world’s premier foot races, held November 4th. The 26-mile race, the ultimate endurance test for a runner, is also a fundraising venue for many charities. The money raised by Team ALS goes to the New York Chapter of the ALS Association.

ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerois, also known as Lou Gherig’s Disease, attacks the nerves and makes them unable to control the muscles. It has no cure.  Stilson’s decline from the degenerative disease began in his early 70’s and happened quickly. He died at age 73.

“Bob Stilson was a high school teacher of mine,” Gedbaw says. “He was a mentor and really the first adult  who showed me there was a world outside the town I grew up in [Ogdensburg, NY]. In later years, we just stayed friends. My goal is to raise five-thousand dollars. The money, which will go to the ALS Association, goes towards research, treatment, therapies and trying to improve the quality of life for people living with the disease.”

Gedbaw, of Raritan Borough, is soliciting donations through his Crowd Rise web page, https://crowdrise.com/paulgedbaw.
