ALS is a degenerative neurological disease that leads to progressive weakness. ALS does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, gender, nationality, or economic status. The cause of ALS is still unknown, and there is no cure... However, there is hope.
Our 16th Annual Recognition and Research Update Luncheon will take place on Sunday, May 7, 2017 at 12 PM at the Philadelphia Marriott West, 111 Crawford Avenue, West Conshohocken, PA 19428.
Join us for a complimentary luncheon to learn more about the latest in ALS research and how your support has helped us keep HOPE on the Horizon!
RSVP on our event page by April 30th. If you have questions or concerns, please email Mara at For sponsorship opportunities, click here.
