“Live Like Dan”

Proceeds from the “Live Like Dan” Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament will benefit research aimed at finding a cure for ALS. ALS (also known as “Lou Gehrig’s disease”) is a progressive, degenerative neurological disease that is 100% fatal. There is no cure, and in fact, there is no known cause.

Dan Summer was a prominent lawyer from Gainesville, GA. who developed ALS in his mid 50’s. Over the course of a few short years, Dan was robbed of the things he loved most in life – his ability to speak, to walk and eventually to breathe. Dan Summer was an inspiration to many. He had a great sense of humor, a commitment to his family and an ability to treat others with respect without regard to their station in life. Mansfield Energy and The Norton Agency are proud to sponsor the “Live Like Dan” Texas Hold ‘Em Tournament benefiting MDA/ALS Research Division.
