CFO Brew Karen Article

Outside the Grind is our occasional feature that spotlights the unique passion projects, side hustles, and hobbies of finance professionals outside of the office. Let us know if you know, or you are, a CFO or finance pro with an interesting, weird, or unusual side gig.

This fall, Karen Walker, CFO of cloud security platform Sysdig, will participate in her 11th ride with the ALS Network’s Ride, Walk & Roll to Cure ALS in California’s Napa Valley, during which she plans to ride 62 miles. She’s also helped put on the ride and was a board member of the organization previously.

Walker has a personal connection to the cause; her mother was diagnosed with ALS when she was only a few years older than her daughter is now. Short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS is an always-fatal disease of the nervous system and affects the muscles that control a person’s ability to move, speak, and even breathe, according to the Mayo Clinic.
