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.

    • ….sometimes you just need a little help from your friends, and other times you make new friends during a very difficult time.  This is what happened to our family when our son, Brett Banasiewicz, suffered a traumatic brain injury on his BMX bike on August 23, 2011.  Dustin Grice is one of Brett’s BMX buddies that reached out to us about the Link Foundation.  Jeff Troldahl, founder of the Link Foundation, and Dustin Grice designed a “Maddog” bracelet with Brett’s signature colors pink and green.  The Link Foundation sold many bracelets via the internet and also allowed us to sell the bracelets at Brett’s BMX Skate Park.  The proceeds went to Brett’s mounting medical bills.  Brett was able to obtain the best care in the United States that also included hyperbarics.  Brett had to relocate to Texas because the state of Indiana is not licensed to administer hyperbarics  for TBI’s..
