The ALS Association, MN/ ND/ SD Chapter
The ALS Association provides vital programs and services in order to meet the needs of approximately 450 people living with ALS, also know as Lou Gehrig's disease, and their families in our service area. For families living with ALS, expenses can climb to $250,000 or more per year. In 2017, our Chapter loaned over 1500 pieces of critical equipment needed through our Durable Medical Equipment Loan Pool, which helps lower expenses and often provides equipment faster than insurance. Awareness of this disease will help us to stress the importance of raising money to support our chapter programs and research in the cause and cure.
