The ALS Association leads the way in global research, provides critical assistance for people living with ALS and their families, coordinates multidisciplinary care through local clinics and centers, and fosters government partnerships. Proceeds from these events will expand our reach, strengthen our supports for local people living with ALS and their families, and get us closer to available treatments.
