Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), sometimes called Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a rapidly progressive, invariably fatal neurological disease that attacks the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscles. No cure has yet been found for ALS. About 10 percent of those individuals with ALS survive for 10 or more years. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for individuals afflicted with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and their families by lessening the financial burden associated with this devastating disease.
The Tim Sheehy Gala & Softball Classic
Project Main St. and Team Gleason are thrilled to announce the Tim Sheehy Gala and Softball Classic. With the funds raised last year, Project Main St. and Team Gleason distributed 18 grants providing direct financial assistance covering the cost of home health care, medical and insurance expenses and home upgrades for wheelchair accessibility. They also provided 41 communication devices, 21 individuals with equipment to make everyday living more manageable and sent 6 families on life-changing adventures.
THE INSPIRATION – The goal of this gala and tournament is to raise money in the fight against ALS as inspired by Tim Sheehy. Tim fought a courageous battle against ALS before his death in 2007; and like Steve Gleason, he saw the need to help those living with ALS by providing care. He created a 501(c)3 – Project Main St. that raised more than $1 million dollars to this mission from 2006-2017. We are fortunate Project Main St. now continues this mission in a partnership with Team Gleason.
