Pete Thompson was diagnosed late last year with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and the progress of the disease has been extremely rapid. Less than a year ago he was playing in hockey tournaments and now this disease is making it difficult for him to move around and do the things that most people take for granted. He and his family have been through a lot in recent years as his youngest son was only recently declared in remission from childhood Leukemia.
Pete has participated in various Colorado tournaments over the years including the Pond Hockey Tournament in Silverthorne and the Air Traffic Controllers Tournament in Golden.
Pete is the kind of guy who goes the extra mile and is always available to help people out. He is the primary breadwinner in his family and the financial burdens associated with treatment are significant.
Please join us in doing what we can to help Pete and his family out!
