When Cindy Moore, a chief engineer at Hecla, was diagnosed with ALS in 2010, she immediately began fundraising for the ALS Association’s Evergreen Chapter and became a tireless advocate against this terrible disease.
Hecla geologist Jonathan Moore was working in his yard with his two young children. He regularly demonstrates to them how Hecla teaches him to stay safe.
