Our Founder, Architect & Inspiration: Tim Sheehy
Project Main St and its mission were conceived entirely by Tim Sheehy during his own courageous battle with ALS. Tim never stopped working on Project Main St. and his desire to help others grew stronger, even as his illness progressed. On April 23, 2007 Tim Sheehy, 38, succumbed to ALS, but not before seeing his vision of a support system for families struggling with this debilitating neurological disease become a reality.
Tim will forever be loved and missed – it is in his honor that Project Main St. continues.
