The ALS Association Golden West Chapter’s mission is to discover treatments and cures for ALS, and to serve, advocate for and empower people affected by ALS so they can live their lives to the fullest.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a fatal neurodegenerative illness that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Everything we do advances the search for effective treatments and cures for ALS. The Chapter currently serves more than 1,700 people with ALS and their families in 31 counties in California and the state of Hawaii.
Proceeds from Champions for Care and a Cure will provide critical funding for The ALS Association Golden West Chapter’s mission priorities in the areas of care services, public policy, and cutting edge ALS research—all of which are essential to achieving our vision: creating a world without ALS.
