The Scott Matzka Story
Take a turn. Share a dream.
Beating ALS will depend on all of us stepping up to take a turn.
It's our turn to...
ALS can't steal all our voices! Please join us in speaking about the plight of persons with ALS.
Let's work together to teach the world about one of the world's most dreaded diseases. Facts pave the way to involved action.
ALS is as expensive as it is horrific. We're doing all we can to raise money for patient care and much-needed research.
Despite the strength of support groups, ALS is a lonely journey. We're doing what we can to help others along the way.
A so-called Orphan Disease, ALS works in the shadows. Let's haul it out into the bright light of public awareness.
Ask For Help
We can't do this alone. We accept that we must not be afraid to ask for help when we need it.
You are never more than 90 minutes from ALS . . .
. . . because every 90 minutes someone is diagnosed with ALS and someone with the disease passes away.
Show Your Support!
Speaking up is one way to help. Showing up is another. There are lots of ways to take a turn.

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.
