Since 1977, the Les Turner ALS Foundation has been Chicagoland's leader in patient services, research, and education for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, and other motor neuron diseases (MND).
Foundation Featured on Medill Reports Chicago
Medill Reports Chicago joined the Foundation during the Freeze ALS Campaign ice sculpture installations to help raise awareness of ALS. The video describes the impact ALS has, not only on patients, but the family, friends and caregivers of PALS. To see the full video, click HERE.
Through joint collaboration with Northwestern Medicine, the Foundation successfully launched its ALS Awareness Month Freeze ALS Campaign on May 7, 8 and 12. Since installing the 12 ice sculptures of our PALS, the Foundation's social media posts alone have generated more than 1.3 million impressions based on this campaign.
Although all of the ice sculptures have been installed, you can still help us Freeze ALS. Use the hashtag #FreezeALS or visit freezeALS.org to continue this momentum as we get closer to permanently freezing ALS.
Stay tuned for the campaign's video component; coming later this month.
