Students Challenge ALS

A school-based program empowering students to fight Lou Gehrig's Disease!

Students Challenge ALS

Students Challenge ALS is a school-based program supported by The ALS Association Greater New York Chapter that provides students with the necessary tools to become advocates for the ALS community by encouraging and emphasizing community activism. The goal of this program is to increase support for those living with Lou Gehrig’s disease by raising funds and awareness to improve the lives of ALS patients and their families.

The 2014 ALS Ice Bucket Challenge inspired people from around the globe to join in our cause and support our mission. The unprecedented awareness and funds raised to support the ALS community has dramatically strengthened the fight against this disease to an unparalleled level but we still need your help to bring us another step closer to finding a cure. We challenge you to further these efforts by starting a fundraising and awareness campaign today!

The ALS Association staff is ready and willing to help guide you and your students through the steps to create a successful event. Whether you lead or participate in a group project, join us on Walk days, or use our baseballs and bracelets to help us Strike Out ALS, joining Students Challenge ALS is a simple, fun way to support the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease. Above all, this program is a way for students to develop their skills and learn how to take initiative and be leaders in their communities.
