Our CEO of Goldkey/PHR Bruce Thompson s son Josh has been diagnosed about a year and a half ago with ALS a disease with a 3 to 5 year life expectancy with little or no options ….
ALS research and drugs are limited ( pharmaceutical companies have no real interest for a disease so rare)… The Best option a drug that can extent life by 30 % and the quallity of life by 50% (Really not much )….
Bruce Thompson a local business mogul (personal opinion) a controversial figure for some ,for others (like me) a man with a dream to change the face of this resort town , modernize and recreate this community into a destination in the US …..
Mr Thompson was determined to do something about the ALS diagnosis of his son Josh…. He soon realized that there is limited research and funding…. He focused on changing that Bruce style … That means breaking every record available to this date….Explained simply that means that The JTWALK just broke every record from money raised in a ALS fundraiser ,attendance ,magnitude etc in the country….
