FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Numotion Foundation Partners with The ALS Association

Washington, D.C. (May 24, 2019) — The ALS Association announced today that the Numotion Foundation has continued its commitment to helping people with ALS to live their lives to the fullest. Through its partnership, the Numotion Foundation will support Walk to Defeat ALS events across the country.

“The Numotion Foundation is committed to supporting the vital work of The ALS Association,” said Mike Swinford, President of the Numotion Foundation and CEO of Numotion. “As national partners, we are proud to expand our support for the Association’s quality of life, education, family support initiatives, as well as its ongoing research program. We are honored to fight for all who have been impacted by ALS.”

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Eventually, people with ALS lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which often leads to total paralysis and death within five years of diagnosis. For unknown reasons, veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population. There is no cure.

"We’re grateful for the Numotion Foundation’s continued support as we keep the momentum going in our fight against ALS," said Tina Zeff, executive vice president of development of The ALS Association.
