Thank you for helping us reach our Walk to Defeat ALS® fundraising goal. With your continued generosity, we can support those affected by Lou Gehrig's Disease and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatments and a cure.
With your help, we will be able to make a difference in the lives of people affected by this disease.
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
