10 Days of Giving – 2019 Day 1

Benjamin Merck was originally chosen as a recipient for the 10 Days of Giving. Unfortunately, Ben passed away from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) on November 26, 2019 at the young age of 16. Ben was a sophomore at Sheyenne High School in West Fargo and enjoyed sports, music and spending time with his friends.  

We extend our deepest sympathies to Ben’s parents, family and friends as they navigate this difficult journey.  Please continue to hold this family close in your thoughts and prayers.
