SAVE THE DATE FOR SACRAMENTO'S BIG DAY OF GIVING!
Over the past year, ALS families have been forced to confront job loss, financial uncertainty, and increased isolation on top of battling ALS. We started the ALS Emergency Impact Fund to help combat this uncertainty and support the critical needs of the ALS community throughout the course of the pandemic. On Thursday, May 6th, Sacramento's Big Day of Giving, we're ready to push the limits and raise critical funds in support of the ALS Emergency Impact Fund. Mark your calendars for 24 hours of philanthropy!
