Medved 5K to Cure ALS

June 16, 2019, 8:30am
Frontier Field Rochester, NY



This year we are excited to be partnering with Hearts for ALS NY, a local, nonprofit, volunteer organization who are committed to working to help people living with ALS.  All money donated to Hearts for ALS NY stay with local families to help cover costs that insurances won’t cover, pay bills, provide and deliver wheelchair ramps, as well as many other things.  Hearts for ALS also provides support in the form of answering insurance, caregiver, and equipment questions.

We are still partnering with ALS TDI, the nonprofit biotech company, who are tirelessly doing research to try and cure ALS and provide treatments to individuals living with ALS.
