Full Court Press on ALS was founded to raise awareness and help find a cure for this crippling disease, which remains underfunded and, to a large extent, little understood. Through educational seminars, fundraisers, and various collegiate basketball programs, Full Court Press on ALS will educate individuals and their families about ALS and will raise critical funds that will help support laboratory investigators and clinicians in their search for a cure.
