This year, we had many generous donors give their hard-earned money to support the fight against ALS. Our Walk to Defeat ALS program alone raised over $300,000!
But our fight isn't over. We are so close to hitting our annual goal, enabling us to continue to provide programs and services to those families battling ALS throughout Alabama.
As the new year is quickly approaching, and the holiday season is about to begin, we are asking you to consider making a final year-end donation. In the past year alone, you have helped to provide services to more than 200 Alabamians living with and affected by ALS! So far this year, gifts from donors like you have provided:
81 ADL Grants
83 Transportation Grants
138 Home Visits
$13,000 in Accessibility Grants
Over 800 hours of Respite Care
and so much more...
Thank you for your continued support. ALS doesn't stop, so neither will we!
