Let’s Kick ALS in the Cornhole!

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, touches way too many people. And it’s touched a wonderful family right here in our community. Check out the cover story in the May 2017 Fishers Towne Post.

Wes Shealey has been an active leader and volunteer in the Community of Fishers for many years.  He has been an integral part of the Hamilton Southeastern youth sport programs, the Fishers High School Athletics Department, and New Hope Presbyterian Church.  During his years of service, Wes has touched the lives of many of us with his unconditional friendship and welcoming personality.  He has given to our community without hesitation, and the list of kids/families that he has had a positive impact on is far too great to include in this document.

In 2015, Wes was diagnosed with ALS.   Although he is facing this challenge in his life with strength and courage, we do not want him to face this alone or without support.

“Wes Shealey will fight this despicable disease with honor and a smile and the same dedication he put into his job, his family, his adult softball career and his running.  ALS always seems to inflict itself on the strongest members of our tribe. But dammit all…”    Read Journalist Bob Kravitz’s story from 2015.

Kick ALS in the Cornhole Tournament: May 13

On Saturday, May 13, 2017 Fishers Sports Academy will be hosting a Cornhole tournament in support of Wes and his family called “Kick ALS in the Cornhole II with Wes Shealey.” Please help us surpass our 2016 fundraising net of $29,000.

In addition to the tournament, it will be a night of friendship and camaraderie, with food and drink available for purchase.  This is our opportunity to give back to a man who has given so much to so many — and we are asking for your support.
