We hope you will join us April 22nd, 2017 in Raleigh for the Walk to Defeat ALS! Team Chris Combs is registered & ready to go!

All of the money raised from this event will go directly to the North Carolina chapter of The ALS Association.

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds that allow our local chapters to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year.

Fly for ALS on October 2nd. Join us at 12:45 pm for a 45-minute private spin class at Flywheel Raleigh. 100% of the proceeds from every bike sold that day will go towards critical research taking place at Columbia.

Emily Rhodes Lowry, a post-doctoral fellow at Columbia University, is using iPS and other stem cell models of human ALS in a new way to discover drugs of interest to patients. This research, along with the work Project ALS is doing with academic and drug company experts to identify drugs that might hit that pathway, will help us choose the best drugs for Chris to try immediately and could provide new options for other ALS patients.

Bikes are just $150 each and space is limited!

The Hope Gala to defeat ALS will be a wonderful night of Hope, as we raise critical funds to fight back against ALS. Through Project ALS we will be funding specific research conducted by Emily Rhodes Lowry, a post-doctoral fellow at Columbia University, who is using iPS and other stem cell models of human ALS in a new way to discover drugs of interest to patients. Working in the laboratory of long-time Project ALS collaborator, Hynek Wichterle, Dr. Lowry has devised a panel of “assays’—or mini representations of human ALS—to identify a new therapeutic pathway in the disease. This research, along with the work Project ALS is doing with academic and drug company experts to identify drugs that might hit that pathway, will help us choose the best drugs for Chris to try immediately and could provide new options for other ALS patients.

The Hope Gala to defeat ALS, will be a wonderful night of hope. This intimate black-tie gala will be held at The Umstead Hotel on September 30th from 7-11pm. The event will be a cocktail style reception, featuring acoustic music by Country Music Entertainer, Scotty McCreery, as well as a live and silent auction and raffle.
