Thanks for supporting ALS research.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a neuro-degenerative disease that attacks nerve
cells in the brain and spinal cord. There is no known cause and no cure. Currently, there is one FDA approved drug to treat the

ALS Napa Trek provides support for our most urgent goal – to create treatments and therapies for people with ALS and their families
