Take Action. Spread Hope.

Choose Your Action

Play Sports. Spread Hope.
Pick a sport, find a place to play, and recruit sponsors. There are fun ways to do what you love and raise awareness – and money – at the same time.

Pour Tea. Spread Hope.
Create your own iced tea stand. Raise money from donations and raise awareness with each customer.

Write Letters. Spread Hope.
Contact your local members of Congress and tell them why ALS research and legislation are important to you. Learn about The ALS Associations’ legislative priorities here.

Throw Pies. Spread Hope.
Take a pie in the face and challenge your friends, teammates, even principal or teachers to do the same. Post the challenge on social media using the hashtag #ALSYouthAction. Pass the challenge on to friends and collect donations.

Educate Others. Spread Hope.
Create a presentation to teach your class, friends, school, or any organization about ALS and how it affects your family.

Share Your Hero. Spread Hope.
Take a picture of your ALS hero. It could be someone living with ALS, or a caregiver, scientist, or doctor participating in the fight against ALS. Post the photo to social media using the hashtags #ALSHero and #ALSYouthAction. Include a few sentences about how your hero inspires you.

Use Your Imagination. Spread Hope.
Develop your own awareness or fundraising idea. Your ideas and passion are limitless. Show everyone your creativity as you help those fighting ALS!
