Salt to Saint Riders supporting the ALS Crowd
|Join with other Salt to Saint racers and ALS Crowd in the Race to End ALS.|
ALS is a terminal illness with an unknown cause, no diagnostic test, and no treatment to stop its effects. It robs diagnosees, in a very short time, of the ability to move, eat, and breathe. Also known as Lou Gehrig' Disease, ALS gained global attention in 2014 during the phenomenon known as the Ice Bucket Challenge. Though millions participated in this challenge, the ALS community still finds itself grappling to discover a cause and a cure.
ALS Crowd is a division of the CrowdCare Foundation, a Utah-based 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by technologists and entrepreneurs who have been diagnosed with ALS or other rare terminal illnesses. Because its founders are nationally recognized within their disease communities, deeply motivated, and completely unpaid, the Foundation is able to use 100% of donated funds to impact the national conversation, drive collaboration within and across multiple illnesses, and to directly develop technologies that will end ALS and other target diseases.
