Ricky Tortone

Rick Tortone is a modern-day Renaissance man: an accomplished musician, a talented carpenter and industral maintenance mechanic, an avid fisherman, and most importantly an incredible disc golfer.

In March 2010, Rick was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The causes of ALS remain elusive. Although the progression of ALS cannot be reversed, advances in treatment have meant that many who have the disease are living longer. That is what Rick wants to do…LIVE LONGER!
