Team Lempa = Results!

The ALS Association is one of the most committed organizations I have worked with. This is one of the reasons that I am proud to be a participant in the Walk to Defeat ALS. One of the questions that people have when they donate money is “where does it go?”

That’s a mighty fine question!

Here’s a rundown of what we are raising money for:

  • Local Care Services: for people and families touched by ALS. These services include equipment loan closets, multi-disciplinary clinics, support groups, home visits, and educational materials.  

  • Research: programs across the world committed to finding effective treatments and a cure for Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our diverse research studies have advanced new discoveries and treatments, and have shed light on the complex genetic and environmental factors involved in ALS.  

  • Public Policy: efforts that change current legislation to provide greater federal support to those with ALS. Current successes include increased veterans benefits, 24-month Medicare waiver, the creation of the National ALS Registry, and research funding by the Department of Defense.

A future post will out line how a donations of $1.00 will directly benefit a person living with ALS.

Please take a moment to support Team Lempa as we Walk to Defeat ALS! You can even be a virtual walker!
