THE STORY:

On 17 April, 2017 I'll be running the 121st Boston Marathon in memory of Susan Petersen, to raise funds for ALS One.

ALS ONE Started by ONE PERSON: Kevin Gosnell

ONE GOAL
Identify a treatment for ALS and enhance care resources for persons living with ALS.

ONE TEAM
Expert leaders in ALS research have convened to leverage the strengths of their venerable institutions to bring a treatment to patients within four years. The team:

• Dr. Robert Brown Jr., MD, DPhil UMass Medical Center
• Dr. Merit Cudkowicz, MD, MSc Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)

• Dr. Steve Perrin, Ph.D. ALS Therapy Development Institute

• Dr. Nazem Atassi, MD Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)

• Dr. James Berry, MD Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)

• Ron Hoffman, Founder and Director Compassionate Care ALS (CCALS)

ONE PATH
Together, this team has identified the strongest therapeutic opportunities in ALS, and has developed a plan with the goal of bringing treatment to patients within four years.  

ONE PLAN
The ALS ONE scientific plan is milestone driven, and will require significant funding to advance. Our approach is to leverage the expertise from the research institutions involved in a true partnership, including the share of ideas and responsibilities to advance each of the strongest therapeutic opportunities identified forward.  A percentage of funds raised will be directed to Compassionate Cares ALS (CCALS) and the ALS Clinics at Massachusetts General Hospital and UMass Medical Center to assist persons living with ALS with the many needs they will face until a treatment is available.

ONE NEED
To raise money to fund care and a cure for ALS.

THANK YOU for your HELP!
