Team Wittenberg is back and this year we are LIVE! The annual ALS Association Walk to Defeat ALS will be on October 28th at the Miller/Knox Recreation area in Richmond We are so excited to have Team Wittenberg join all the other teams,volunteers and Golden West Chapter (GWC) for an exciting walk along the bay. Please join us as a solo participant, volunteer,sponsor, donor or fundraiser.
Though there is still no know cure for ALS, we have not remained idle.There are several hopeful projects that are in various phases of trials and research remains robust due to the focused commitment of the ALS Association and the Golden West Chapter (GWC). The ALS Association is providing funding for 155 active projects in 12 countries around the world, representing a current commitment of $52 million. The ALS Association has invested $116 million in ALS research since the 2014 Ice Bucket Challenge. The Golden West Chapter hosted the 13th annual California ALS Research Summit, bringing together world renowned researchers, investigators,clinicians,biotech companies, government representatives and advocates in ALS and related fields.
Equally important are the Care Services and Advocacy programs. More than 1800 people with ALS and their loved ones were served by the Golden West Chapter in 31 counties throughout California and Hawaii. They also provided 714 grants to people with ALS for durable medical/communication equipment needs, transportation support,emergency assistance and respote care. Through the Advocacy program, The GWC works tirelessly and assertively with states and national legislatures/agencies to ensure that funding, as well as policy decisions are directed toward ridding the world of this horrific disease. Your support makes a difference. It is only together that we will defeat ALS.
