To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
For more than 40 years, the Greater Philadelphia Chapter has worked to improve the quality of life for people with ALS by supporting vital ALS research and direct care services to patients and their families, as well as engaging in advocacy at the state and federal levels. We serve more than 1,100 people each year and cover a broad service area that encompasses eastern and central Pennsylvania, central and southern New Jersey, and all of Delaware.
The Philadelphia Phillies adopted the Greater Philadelphia Chapter as its principle charity more than three decades ago. No other ALS chapter has enjoyed such an extensive and rewarding relationship with a professional sports organization. The team’s determination and passion to create a world free of ALS continues to inspire the support of prestigious partners throughout the region including Fortune 500 companies, extensive health care systems, and well-known philanthropists.
