Lou Gehrig Day for MLB
Last week was filled with incredible highs and devastating lows for us. A close group of advocates — some currently battling ALS and others who have joined the fight — have been meeting weekly for the last year to push for an official Lou Gehrig Day in baseball. Our tireless efforts paid off with word that all 30 teams officially signed on to support our cause.

ACT for ALS
The Accelerating Access to Critical Therapies for ALS Act will make $75,000,000 available in FY 2021 and 2022 as part of a pilot to provide grants to support expanded access programs. It will bring treatments for rapidly progressing diseases for which effective therapies don’t already exist to patients beyond the ongoing clinical trial.
