ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, is a neurodegenerative disease in which a person's brain loses connection with the muscles. People with ALS lose their ability to walk, talk, eat, and eventually breathe. Although there is not yet a cure or treatment that halts ALS, scientists have made significant progress in understanding what causes ALS. But their work is not done. Together, we work towards a cure.
The ALS Association's focus is on care services, research, advocacy, and stewardship. That's where East Woods School comes in! East Woods students and parents are joining our team to support the ALS Association's Walk to Defeat ALS. You could be the key to unlock ALS, by either walking on September 25, 2021, by making a donation, or both! Thank you for supporting us in this important and urgent cause as we raise vital awareness in this important fight!
By walking and showing your support and/or making a one-time, tax-deductible donation, you can truly make a difference in the fight against ALS. Any amount you feel comfortable giving is deeply appreciated, and remember, if you cannot donate and only walk, it is greatly appreciated too!
Together in service,
