Restoring Hope
Since July 29, more than 3 million people supported The ALS Association through the Ice Bucket Challenge. Locally, The ALS Association Northern Ohio Chapter has received over $1 million in support of local care programs to help Northern Ohioans living with ALS. More than the awareness and support, our families are reporting a sense of hope...for a treatment, a cure, and a better tomorrow. Thank you to all who have participated in this most amazing outpouring of support in the history of The ALS Association.
