As a member of Team ALS, you won’t just be competing on the Birkie course. We also ask that you help out on the fundraising trail. Because every dollar raised to help fight ALS gets us another step closer to finding a cure.
There is no cost for skiers to participate, we request that Team ALS members raise at least $1000 toward the cause.
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. The disease robs people of the ability to walk, talk and even blink an eye. It traps them inside a body they no longer can control and ultimately prevents them from breathing as it takes their life. People with ALS lose the power to use their legs, hold someone close, and say, “I love you,” before their bodies gradually shut down. . From onset to diagnosis, life expectancy is 2 – 5 years.
Join us for an evening of hope and inspiration at the 19th Annual Light the Journey Gala on Saturday, April 9, 2022.
Along with a live auction, there is a silent auction where everyone is sure to find a package they love. We use a mobile bidding platform so you can place your bids on your phone and enjoy more time socializing.
