What Inspires you to Spread ALS Awareness?
It all starts with you. Your passion and commitment to spreading the word brings us closer to a cure. Educating more people about the devastating impacts of ALS helps the Foundation provide more support and research funding to benefit people living with ALS and their loved ones. Help Freeze ALS and spread awareness this May by sharing with others why it’s important to you to find a cure!
Together, we can create awareness and Freeze ALS.
