May is ALS Awareness Month


Welcome to Spring and ALS Awareness Month! Together, we can raise awareness of ALS during the month of May!

CHALK YOUR WALK this month to share messages about ALS. Send a picture of your chalked walk to us by email ([email protected]) or post your photo on social media using the hashtag #chalkyourwalkforals. 


EXPLORE LITTLE FREE LIBRARIES around Ann Arbor, Saline, Ypsilanti, and Dexter and look for books we’ve added about ALS, Lou Gehrig’s life and baseball career, and stories written by families who have lived with ALS. 


Active Against ALS will also be out and about in Saline helping educate our community about  ALS.  Please visit our ALS DISPLAY at the SALINE DISTRICT LIBRARYafter May 7, 2022.

All donations support Active Against ALS in our mission to find a cure for ALS.

Past ALS Awareness News:

At the May 10, 2018 City Council meeting, Ann Arbor Mayor Christopher Taylor passed this proclamation:

“[I] do hereby proclaim May 10, 2018 as ALS Awareness Day and recognize the importance of increasing public awareness of this disease and encouraging residents of all ages to be informed, involved, and active.”

Over 6,000 people are diagnosed with ALS annually. With your support, Ann Arbor Active Against ALS has awarded over $800,000 towards research since our founding in 2008, but until there’s a cure, we need to do more.

As we approach our 15th anniversary year, we hope that you join us in our efforts. We ask that you make a gift today to stop a disease that knows no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
