August 3rd at The Beaudry Homestead Corntoss Challenge West Bend, Wisconsin!
On October 8th, 2015, Sean Beaudry received a call that would dramatically change his life forever. While sitting in the parking lot of a gas station his father, Bryan Beaudry had called to let him know that he had just been diagnosed with ALS. Since that day, Bryan has been fighting ALS while always keeping a positive attitude. Bryan served in the US Air Force for 10 years, was a police officer for over 15 years, local sports coach, and continues to be a loving father and grandfather.
Sean also has a close family friend whose husband passed after a 15 month battle with ALS, leaving behind a wife and two young boys. It was from this family friend that Sean adopted his life motto “Doing Nothing Does Nothing.” It is for these two loved ones that Sean continues to fight. The inspiration he receives from them is what he uses to push forward to run and fundraise for the ALS Therapy Development Institute. Along with raising awareness for ALS research, Sean enjoys running and being the best dad he can be for his four daughters, all of whom, along with his wife Jamie, cheered him on during the 2018 Boston Marathon!
