ALS Hero: Todd Myers

by | Mar 6, 2020

On April 3rd, during the Under Ballou Skies Golf Classic and Party, we’ll be honoring Todd Myers as our ALS Hero.

From 32 years of working for the Austin Police Department to being an investigator for the Travis County District Attorney’s Office to now living with ALS – Todd Myers is a true inspiration.

Todd served as a field training officer and in numerous specialized units during his time with the Austin PD. You could always count on Todd for a good laugh and at the same time, he was the guy you wanted in your corner when things got real.

Todd has always had a love for music and the Austin Music Community. He is a skilled guitarist and loves playing the drums. Todd has played in several bands, including “Dysfunkshun Junkshun” and “Funky Old Soul”.

After his Austin PD retirement, Todd chose a second career working for the Travis County District Attorney’s Office as an investigator. While working for the District Attorney is when Todd learned that he had ALS.

In just a few short months, Todd’s life has completely changed. He has lost most of the use of his muscles, but he is so thankful to have his family and friends by his side – the fight against ALS has drawn them even closer.

The Under Ballou Skies Party is online this year! Please join us on Friday, June 26, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. for some inspiration, celebration, and a chance to give hope to Texans battling ALS. We’ll honor fellow Austinite Todd Myers, have the opportunity to bid on silent auction items, and enjoy music from local band Dysfunkshun Junkshun.
