Together, we can make a difference and help Cure the Boys
We are pleased to announce that our 5th Annual Run for ALD, Cure the Boys was our biggest and best event yet! It was a beautiful day with 537 participants in person as well as virtual from all over the country. Several ALD families participated, including 30 teams and nearly 80 young male runners from Let Me Run St. Louis, adding to the festive atmosphere. There was lots of love and support shown as we also honored many ALD boys who we've lost and many who are fighting the disease. Thanks to our 17 generous sponsors, all funds donated will go directly to support the life-saving research at the University of Minnesota Leukodystrophy Center. We are thrilled to report $48,500 is our total raised for 2021!! THANK YOU! Be sure to check back as we add photos from this year's event!
