Help and Hope for people affected by ALS

Your fundraising efforts and generous donations support the best ALS research in the country and enable ALS Societies to provide community-based support to people and families living with the disease.

40% Research

Forty percent of proceeds are directed to the ALS Canada Research Program where they are invested in the best ALS research in Canada awarded annually following a peer-reviewed competition.

60% Community-Based Support

Sixty percent of proceeds directly benefit your provincial ALS Society, enabling it to provide community-based support to people affected by ALS. Support varies by province based on the gaps within the healthcare system and can include educational information, referrals to local health care and community services, equipment assistance, home visits and support groups.
