Plan an Event

For the past two decades, the Family and Community Events program has been a vital part of the Foundation’s history. This program allows patients and families to raise awareness of ALS in memory or honor of a loved one and raise funds to support the Foundation’s critical mission.

On average, more than 30 events are hosted each year by family event organizers who have helped raise more than $1.5 million for the Foundation; this helps fund patient care for nearly 90% of all Chicagoland area ALS patients and support groundbreaking research  and clinical care at the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine.

Over the years, the Family and Community Events program has hosted a wide variety of events, allowing families to engage in fun, challenging and profitable events. Examples of past events include:

  • Golf Outings
  • Concerts
  • Softball Tournaments
  • Shopping Events
  • Carnivals
  • Game Nights
  • Pub Crawls and Cocktail Hours
  • Corporate Luncheon
