Six months ago Diane Proud was diagnosed with ALS—and the world-recognized triathlete, who holds every title in her age group, was given two to five years to live. In another six months, the head running coach at the Cooper Aerobics Center will be unable to talk. While there is no cure for ALS, there are some clinical trials available and Diane’s friends will do whatever they can to help her get the funds she needs to travel around the country for these trials… not to mention the funds for her regular medical expenses. And you can help too, by participating in Run Proud, a 5K run/walk sponsored by Run On and the Texas Orthopedic Association. Registration is only $20; half goes to the ALS Association, and half goes directly to Diane. Learn more at, and race to support this local legend.
