Summer is here and we're
Stepping Up to Cure ALS!
We're looking forward to seeing our Angel Fund family at our in-person events that are coming up this Summer and Fall.

There is something for everyone as we support Dr. Robert Brown and his research team at UMass Medical School: the annual walk, the annual golf tournament, gala, 100 innings of baseball, an ice bucket challenge, the Marathon and shopping - all to raise funds for ALS research. We are proud to say that of funds expended, The Angel Fund gives 92% to research!

We hope that you will join us as a participant or even a spectator! Please remember that all our indoor and outdoor events will follow up-to-date guidelines to keep everyone safe. If you are not vaccinated, please wear a mask.

Thank you for your continued support - working together we can make hope a reality.

Thank you for Stepping up to Cure ALS.
