ALS, or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. As ALS progresses, it can take away the ability to walk, dress, write, speak, swallow, and breathe. The average life span after diagnosis is 3 years. Dave Schimschock was a loving husband, extraordinary father, outdoorsman, sports fan, and kind soul. He passed away from ALS at the age of 49, 2.5 years after his ALS diagnosis. Despite the heartbreaking hand he was dealt, Dave never lost his courage, strength, attitude, and selflessness. His wife and daughters continue to honor him by hosting a day each August to celebrate his life. The Schimmy Scramble is a golf tournament that is hosted in memory of Dave and provides his family and friends with a day full of fun, and sharing memories of him. The Schimmy Scramble also raises money and awareness for the ALS Association and to support other local families that are fighting against ALS.

  • I am grateful for The Link Foundation because they take an interest in individual lives. They have blessed a few of our underprivileged teens with the nicest bikes they could have ever envisioned! It meant so much to each teen, giving them a greater sense of worth and identity.”
