When organizing any kind of activity, our most important goal is to get people out and socializing with others. We believe in the soothing nature of human contact. To offer continuous support to those affected by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), their families and their caregivers, we organize events and activities all year round.

To find out about our educational, support and social activities, consult the Calendar of Events.
