The money that we raised will go towards a mission that we can all get behind - a world without ALS.

There is currently NO cure, and that is just unacceptable for a disease with a life expectancy of 2-5 years.

Funds raised will go towards:
  • Continuing the 150+ research projects looking into the causes of ALS in hopes of developing better treatments
  • Supporting patient services clinics, support groups, equipment lending, and transportation
  • Leading the way in helping to ensure the ALS community has proper access to care


We need to do everything we can to find a treatment and a cure. Together, let's make a difference - one dollar at a time!
