Each year, The ALS Association Northern Ohio Chapter holds several fundraising events to raise awareness and funds that help provide invaluable services to people living with ALS. Come join the fun and help make a difference at the “Strike Out! ALS Gala and Auction on Saturday, May 18th at The Global Center for Health Innovation in downtown Cleveland.
ALC was first found in 1860 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.
