Also referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. While there is currently no cure for ALS, doctors and researchers have found some treatments and therapies that may help to slow the progression of the disease. Still, for the 30,000 or so people living with ALS, the effects are life altering and debilitating.
Since August 2014, the Ice Bucket Challenge
has been sweeping the country raising awareness and money for ALS. Besides showing you care with an ice bath on video and a donation, the items below also represent the cause. Your purchase earns points that you can allocate towards an ALS related donation.
ALS Awareness is represented by the color red
. Some may also choose blue
or blue and white pin stripes to honor Lou Gehrig. Choose below from our in stock selection of rubber wristbands, ribbon magnets, lapel pins and more or place a custom order
to support ALS Awareness for your event or fundraiser.
