How You Can Help
"ALS is a brutal disease. We need to help people with ALS and find a cure."
- Mark Robin
This year, all donations from Soul Shine will support Team Gleason, an organization focused on technology, travel and quality of life for those living with ALS.
Steve Gleason will always be remembered for his blocked punt on the night the New Orleans Superdome reopened for the first time after Hurricane Katrina. Steve played for The New Orleans Saints from 2000-2008. In 2011, Steve was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), considered a terminal neuro-muscular disease. Steve is determined to inspire others by continuing to pursue life adventures despite his diagnosis, and has challenged the worlds of technology and science to identify their most promising developments toward new treatments and a cure.
Steve and his friends and family started Team Gleason to generate public awareness for ALS, raise funding to empower those with ALS to live a rewarding life, and ultimately find a cure.
There are many organizations and researchers helping people with ALS as well as working to find relief from symptoms and ultimately, a cure. We would love to fund them all, but have selected several organizations in addition to Team Gleason that we encourage you to support.
