Los Angeles, CA-Fun, Fitness and Fundraising will kick off the two year journey to the 50th birthday celebration of three childhood friends from Los Angeles that have overcome adversity and thrived in their respective careers. The friends invite you along as they get in the best shape of their lives, celebrate life and support the cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
Through illness, childbirth, bad break ups, career highs and lows, these sister friends made a pact to uplift and support each other through it all. A giving spirit, smarts, good looks and personality are not the only things these women possess. Their common bonds run deep as well as their affinity for Los Angeles, the urban melting pot that armed these women with the life lessons and tools for them to survive in the world.
Elise “Squeaky” Spears will be the first of the trio to cross the 50 years old threshold. An accountant by trade and mother to an only child, Squeaky suffers from ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. Stricken with the disease shortly after the birth of her daughter, “Squeaky” has not allowed the disease to slow her down. The “middle” sister friend, Yvette “Vetta” Perkins, is no Jan Brady. A legal secretary by trade, “Vetta” is the glue that holds the trio together. With her giving spirit and supportive nature, Vetta, is the friend that that most women wish they had on their roster of close friends. Bringing up the rear is Regina “Regi” Nelson. The mother of one and grandmother of three is not your typical rocking chair grandma. The federal law enforcement officer travels the world ensuring the safety of U.S. citizens while working for the Department of Homeland Security.
