Drop the Puck on ALS


A natural tie-in to Lou Gehrig's Disease, it's a baseball tailgate party held in the parking lot of Miller Park before a Milwaukee Brewers game and includes a free concert, food and drinks, and a ticket to the game. Inside the stadium, we make our presence known by wearing matching ALS t-shirts and having an ALS patient or family member throw the ceremonial first pitch.

Chasin' A Cure


While there's no shortage of charity walk/run events out there, the sense of community and support at ours is absolutely amazing. There's no better way to describe it than a "2.1k Love Fest" (Or 5k Love Fest for the Milwaukee run). Maybe that's because the money that's raised at these events stays right here in Wisconsin, providing equipment and services to help local ALS patients and their families cope with the disease.
Milwaukee Walk to Defeat ALS is on October 7, 2018.

Walk to Defeat ALS


Started in 1992 by Jeff Kaufman, who valiantly battled ALS for 21 years, the Evening of Hope has grown to become one of the most popular black tie charity events in Wisconsin – with 100% of the proceeds going toward researching the cause and a cure for ALS. Please join us for the 25th Annual Evening of Hope on March 10th, 2018.
Stay tuned for more information.
