The ALS Association Arizona Chapter's mission is to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global, cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrigís Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support. The ALS Association Arizona Chapter is dedicated to improving the quality-of-life for persons with ALS. We provide movement to those who have lost the ability to walk; communication to those who have lost the ability to speak; support to those who have lost the ability to cope; and a voice and role in the fight against Lou Gehrigís Disease.
Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Income for the year ending January 31, 2009 was eight percent higher than the previous year for the total revenue of $817,345. The total number of patients and families receiving services increased from 319 in 2008 to 332 in 2009. At the end of the fiscal year 230 active patients and families were receiving services versus 223 at the end of 2008. The major goal for 2009 is to increase participation in the Walks to Defeat ALS which will be held in Tempe on October 11 and in Tucson on October 24. When ALS families start a Walk team, they discover how many other family members and friends support them. Walk day is a grand celebration of love and friendship and hope. Everyone pulls together to give their best to help support ALS patient and family services and research to find the cause and cure for Lou Gehrigís Disease.
