Our Holiday Auction has been put together to help raise funds that we were unable to raise throughout the year. This year has seen drastic change to people worldwide.
Those living with ALS and their families have been affected especially hard. During times of struggle and pain, we have learned to lean towards gratitude for the things that are within our grasp.
This silent auction is made possible through the support of so many who believe in our mission. All funds raised will continue to help support families battling ALS. Share the link, and tell your friends! There are some unique items that would make perfect presents for those sports enthusiasts in your life!
Our goal is to raise $150,000!
And as always, we appreciate your continued support and look forward to a brighter year in 2021.
