ALS Awareness Month: It Takes All of Us
Every May, the ALS community bands together for ALS Awareness Month. Through community events, volunteerism, advocacy work, and donations, we’re doing Whatever It Takes to create a world without ALS. We’ve already seen amazing progress through our collective efforts. But we’re not done yet.
