Warrior Fund for ALS Research

Warrior Dash runners please donate to the
Keith Wilson Warrior Fund for ALS Research!

Keith WilsonOur brother Keith Wilson was a true warrior. Like all the people afflicted with this dreadful disease, Keith fought his battle courageously. Keith died in 2009 at 52 years old. He loved his family, the ranch, staying fit, and was an advocate for the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) and their world leading research to find effective treatments for Lou Gehrig's Disease (ALS). So we thought we'd combine our efforts with the Warrior Dash Obstacle Race and ALS TDI.

What is ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that leads to paralysis, due to the death of motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain. There is no known cure for the disease. About 5,000 people in the US are diagnosed with ALS each year; the incidence is similar to multiple sclerosis. However, with no effective treatment, the average patient survives only two to five years following diagnosis. There are about 30,000 people in the US diagnosed with ALS today. The worldwide population of ALS patients is estimated at 450,000.

ALS Therapy Development Institute

The world's first nonprofit biotech institute, ALS TDI has developed an industrial-scale platform, employs 30 professional scientists and evaluates dozens of potential therapeutics each year. Built by and for patients, the Cambridge, Massachusetts based research institute collaborates with leaders in both academia and industry to accelerate ALS therapeutic development.
