The inaugural Bike 4 Mike charity cycling event benefiting Team Godfather’s vision to find a cure for ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) was held Nov. 4 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event also honored beloved community member Mike Ramirez, who passed away earlier this year from ALS.  Today, more than 150 families in San Diego are facing the tragedy of ALS.

Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, ALS is a progressive disorder that destroys nerve cells that control voluntary muscle movement, and eventually causes paralysis.
