About ALS

ALS ( aka Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a neurological disease that primarily affects the nerve
cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement (those muscles we
choose to move). Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and
talking. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time. Currently,
there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt or reverse the progression of
the disease.

About Active Against ALS

Active Against ALS is a grassroots, 501 (c) (3), nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise funds for research toward effective treatments and ultimately a cure for ALS, while raising awareness of the disease, encouraging physical activity, and building a compassionate community. Since 2008, Active Against ALS has donated over $830,000 to the most advanced and progressive researchers.

The event is finished.
