Daren’s Story

Our ALS Story


Daren has always been an athletic, determined man, with a superhuman work ethic! He was born in Utah, raised in California and Oregon, but he and his family have called beautiful Draper, Utah home for 15 years. His passion in life is his family, together they enjoy everything outdoors, athletic and a love of music. Daren’s ALS symptoms began in 2011, or earlier, with diagnosis a year and a half later, at age 47. After working many years on the “zombie squad”, as a pharmacist, along with tireless work creating additional business opportunities, Daren was forced to take permanent disability leave in 2013. Daren and Leah, his wife of 27 years, and their amazing daughters, are determined to fight with faith, courage and humor, for Daren’s life, for ALS awareness, for treatments and for a cure! The Redden family is ever grateful to innumerable family members, friends and associates who have joined with them to fight!!
