Description

ABOUT THE ALS ASSOCIATION INDIANA CHAPTER:

The Indiana Chapter of the ALS Association was founded in 1997 by a small group of passionate individuals touched by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) to serve the needs of Hoosiers and their families living with the disease. Being the only ALS Association Chapter in Indiana, we serve the entire state and symbolize the hopes of people everywhere that ALS will one day be a disease of the past, conquered by the dedication of thousands who have worked tirelessly to understand and eradicate this perplexing killer.

The ALS Association is the only non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.

Our accomplishments are made possible by the generosity of others. From the smallest donation to the largest gift, donors touch the ALS community with hope for the future.
