Gronk's Grace is back again! We lost our amazing buddy Kris Grahnke last July to ALS, and this year we are continuing to race on in his honor. Please join our team and help us fundraise money for the ALS warriors past and present. We appreciate all your support and can't wait to get out on the field with everyone!
Since 2010 the Strike Out ALS 5k, has attracted thousands of Chicago area runners and has raised over $300,000 for the Foundation. In 2016, the event had more than 450 participants that came together and raised over $50,000! The money we raise together goes toward helping people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through the Foundation’s Home and Community Service and grant programs. It also supports the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine where PALS are seen by a multi-disciplinary clinical staff at the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic, ensuring no part of their disease goes unseen and untreated. The Center also supports three full functioning research laboratories, each on providing hope of a future without ALS.
