When you hear the name “ALS” many may associate the disease with the “Ice Bucket Challenge,” that went viral a few months ago where many people from around the world including celebrities, politicians and many more would dump a bucket of ice cold water over their heads to bring awareness to ALS.
Now thanks to the collaboration with GE and other affiliates such as the ALSA Association the ALS Finding a Cure Foundation has been making a remarkable attempt to keeping the awareness and charitable contributions going. ALS Finding a Cure was founded by Lee Rizzuto Sr, the Owner of ConAir and was inspired by Christie Rizzuto, who was diagnosed with ALS in 2009 at the age of 41.
The new foundation’s main goal according to alsfindingacure.org is to “Translate funding into cutting-edge development tools, provide and open platform for neurological research material, understand disease heterogeneity, and promote early detection for those effected by ALS.” Headed by an advisory board of established notable members and overseen by Peter N. Foss the ALS Finding a Cure contributes 100% toward funding research.
