ALS Challenge

The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s disease on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centres, and fostering government partnerships. As most of you are likely aware ALS initiated an ice bucket challenge to try and raise awareness for this debilitating disease. To date $100 million has been raised through this challenge, with donations ranging from under one dollar to $200,000. To show CAPA’s support for the cause our National President, Chris Rhule and Vice-President, Mark McLennan participated in this campaign posting their own videos on social media networks.
