Help find the cure

With someone in the U.S. being diagnosed with ALS every 90 minutes, chances are you or someone you know has been personally affected by the disease. The Les Turner ALS Foundation has a wide variety of ways that you can get involved and make a difference for these patients and their families.

In the U.S., someone is diagnosed with ALS every 90 minutes and every 90 minutes someone with ALS dies.

Whether it be through a donationvolunteering, participating in the annual ALS Walk For Life, running in a Foundation signature 5K or creating your own fundraising and awareness event, the opportunities are endless! Your support spreads awareness of the disease, raises money for research and care at the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine and allows the Foundation to provide high-quality patient and family services to nearly 90% of the Chicagoland ALS population.
