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.
Team Gleason is a 501(c)3 non-profit founded by former NFL player, Steve Gleason. After being diagnosed with ALS in 2011, Steve founded Team Gleason, an organization focused on providing an immediate impact to people living with ALS through innovative technology, adventures, equipment and care services.
