Our beautiful friend Bunni Rose-Walls was diagnosed with ALS on May 28, 2019.
Upon receiving her life altering diagnosis, Bunni went straight to the gym to teach a spin class! Later that evening Bunni confided in her then boyfriend Mike about her diagnosis. Mike, having intended to propose later this year, promptly proposed. Bunni accepted and the couple was married in a beach side ceremony on Sunday, September 1, 2019.
Anyone who has had the pleasure of meeting Bunni knows health and fitness has been her life’s work. A personal trainer, spin instructor, Zumba instructor and wellness guru would be the last person on earth you would expect to get a diagnosis of ALS... but this disease does not discriminate.
ALS commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease is a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function. In this disease, nerve cells break down, which reduces functionality in the muscles they supply. The cause is unknown.
