To raise awareness and raise money to find a cure for ALS
Pete's story
In April of 2010 Pete was diagnosed with ALS, also known as Lou Gherig's disease. ALS is a progressive terminal disease. Once diagnosed, the typical lifespan is 2-5 years. ALS affects all voluntary muscles, including the respiratory of which it will take away ones ability to breathe which leads to death.

There is no cure, or treatment for ALS, and it is not a well known disease of which it gets very little funding for research. I have found that many people have heard ALS, or Lou Gherig, but have no idea what it does. It is an awful disease.

We wanted to do something, so we started The Pete Zucker Foundation, "For Pete's Sake". We are trying to raise money for research, and build awareness of this devastaing disease. "For Pete's Sake" sweatshirts, t-shirts and socks are being worn all over our community and beyond, supporting our cause. Pete's teamates from his local cycling team, now Kovarus continue to be there for support, raise money, and spread awareness through the athletic community of which Pete had once been so active in.
Thank you for all of your support.
