Battling ALS, Auroran still finds ways to give back

October 20, 2015 - als

I have to admit, some of my motives were greedy in requesting a sit-down with Bruce Lindgren.

For sure, we wanted to assistance widespread a news about a ALS fundraiser he and mother Meredith put together that will take place Sunday afternoon during Ballydoyle Irish Restaurant and Pub in Aurora.

The former owners of a appurtenance pointing tools manufacturer, Lindgren was handed his deadly diagnosis dual years ago. And given then, he’s been a untiring fundraiser for The ALS Association that is dedicated to medical investigate and providing support for patients and families.

Lindgren has always been about giving back. Not usually do he and Meredith persevere large proffer hours to Aurora’s Wesley United Methodist Church, a integrate is during Hesed House any week, where she works in a soup kitchen and Bruce, an engineer, continues to manage a Bicycle Ministry he started 5 years ago that has refurbished some-more than 300 aged bikes for a homeless clients there.
