ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed.

Every day two or three Canadians die of the disease.

MARKHAM, ON, April 19, 2016 /CNW/ - Six months ago, Liberal MP Mauril Bélanger was running in the federal election, continuing his dedication of over 20 years to serving his constituents in the riding of Ottawa-Vanier. His life changed November 2015, when he was diagnosed with the terminal disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig's. Although ALS has taken away his ability to speak, it has not taken away his voice or commitment to help others.

Community engagement plays a really important role in fundraising for ALS Canada. We are grateful for everyone who gets involved and dedicates their time to hosting BBQ’s, block parties, dance-a-thons, and Ice Bucket Challenges! We could not do the work we do, without your support.
