Our mission is to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
The ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter is thrilled to be involved with the 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race! We are so grateful for the opportunity to take part in this prestigious event and help continue to raise awareness of ALS!
Our team goal is to raise $25,000 which will provide no cost services to patients and families living with ALS! If you are a runner and want to join Team Challenge ALS, you can click
ALS is a neurodegenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord which eventually leads to muscle paralysis. The disease is always fatal. There is no cure and people with ALS live an average of 2-5 years after diagnosis.
The ALS Association, Massachusetts Chapter's vision is to create a world without ALS. Our mission is to discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest. Our core values are COMPASSION, INTEGRITY, URGENCY.
The ALS Association is the largest funder of non-government sponsored research in the country. Our care services programs help patients and family members by providing supports groups, equipment loans, assistive technology, insurance and benefits counseling, and much more. We also advocate at the federal level for funding and laws to benefit ALS patients.
The money raised by the runners of Team Challenge ALS will be used to support our Care Service programs and help lead us closer to creating a world without ALS!
