Despite the challenges of this year and the last minute cancellation of our live event due to local restrictions, we are thrilled with the success of Run for ALD 2020! We are so grateful to our record number of sponsors (see them below), participants, and generous donors who all came through to make this year our biggest with $30,000 raised for the boys!!! This year brings our total raised to date for ALD Research at the University of Minnesota to over $70,000 to help benefit ALD boys from all over the U.S. and beyond through research projects that focus on better treatments and outcomes for ALD boys. This year, we were also thrilled to mentor and help Minnesota ALD families create their first fundraising event. Knockout ALD was the nonprofit host for their first Outrun ALD Virtual 5K in September which raised over $120,000 for ALD research also at the University of Minnesota! What an amazing year for ALD fundraising and research!
