90 Ways to Fight ALS

October 17, 2013

ALS community members continually strive to have a positive impact in the fight against Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Many have chosen to follow The Association and its chapters on social media, and they frequently “re-tweet” or “share” content from these sites.

Others attend their local Walk to Defeat ALS® events, while some have written about personal or shared experiences in living with ALS. Additional ways to fight ALS include advocating for those who have lost the ability to talk, lending your time and talents to work in a chapter’s office, or hosting a fundraiser like a garage sale.

“We’re always grateful when those from the ALS community become involved in the fight against this devastating disease,” said ALS Association President & CEO Jane H. Gilbert. “People can make meaningful contributions, whether it’s through volunteering at a chapter’s events, making a donation, or telling friends and colleagues about ALS and its effects on families.”

Below are some of the 90 ways individuals can become involved in helping families living with ALS and educating the public about the disease.

  • Attend an ALS Association chapter support group.
  • Leave literature about Lou Gehrig’s Disease at your place of business.
  • Bring groceries to an ALS caregiver.
  • Remember someone who lost their battle with ALS through a memorial gift.
  • Celebrate ALS Awareness Month each May.
  • Visit The Association’s website to learn the latest in ALS research.
