Knockout ALD is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your generous gift is tax-deductible and will help us fund research projects that are working to find better treatments and a cure for ALD. Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) is a rare, progressive X-linked genetic disease that most severely affects boys. Without early diagnosis and treatment, boys with cerebral ALD eventually lose all neurological functions.

Together, we can make a difference and help Cure the Boys
Despite the challenges of 2020 and the last minute cancellation of our live event due to local restrictions, we were thrilled with the success of Run for ALD 2020! It was our biggest event yet with $32,000 raised for the boys!!! Our total now raised to date for ALD Research at the University of Minnesota is $80,000 to help benefit ALD boys from all over the U.S. and the world through research projects that focus on better treatments and outcomes for ALD boys.
Our 5th Annual Run for ALD, Cure the Boys will take place in person near St. Louis, MO at Creve Coeur Park and virtually on Nov. 20, 2021!
