Walk to Defeat ALS
As of Friday, August 29, exactly one month from when the Ice Bucket Challenge went viral, The ALS Association has received $100.9 million in donations from existing donors and 2.3 million new donors to The Association.
“The word gratitude doesn’t do enough to express what we are feeling right now,” said Barbara Newhouse, President and CEO. “We recognize a profound sense of urgency and are engaged in discussions about how we’re going to put this money to work in the short term and into the future.”
The ALS Association’s mission includes providing care services to assist people with ALS and their families through a network of chapters working in communities across the nation and a global research program focused on the discovery of treatments and eventually a cure for the disease. In addition, The Association’s advocacy efforts empower people to advance public policies in our nation’s Capital that respond to the needs of people with ALS.
