Fundraising Resources


ALS is not incurable, only underfunded. Please support the ALS Therapy Development Institute in our race against time.

Our innovative science and cutting edge approach have resulted in:

  • The identification of a promising treatment for ALS: AT-1501.
  • The largest database of preclinical drug study findings in animal models of ALS, with more potential treatments screened each year.
  • The world's first Precision Medicine Programdesigned to speed up drug discovery and therapeutic development for ALS.
  • The only database integrating genetics, demographics, voice recordings, and accelerometer-derived movement data from hundreds of people with ALS.
  • The development of algorithms and tools that assess ALS clinical progression and increase the pace of ALS clinical research.
  • The overall improvement of world-wide standards of preclinical drug evaluation in ALS.
  • The highest number of independent preclinical drug validation experiments conducted in current ALS development pipelines.

You can help us push the pace of research. The more we fundraise, the closer we get to an effective therapy for this horrific disease. All participants will receive a fundraising page where they can share their story, track their fundraising and family and friends can donate. We understand that fundraising can be challenging. The following fundraising resources will get you started. Please contact us at and we would be happy to brainstorm additional ideas!


Fundraising Steps to Success

Race 4 Research is ALS Therapy Development Institute's premier 5K and walk, bringing together more than 400 participants from the community each year. The event raises money and awareness for the fight against ALS.

Race 4 Research participants will walk, run or roll through Technology Square, Cambridge's biotechnology hotspot. The ALS TDI Race 4 Research brings attention to the critical role scientific research plays in bringing us closer to effective treatments and a cure for ALS. Dress in your nerdiest costume and join us for a chip-timed, 5k road race, a 4-mile ALS awareness walk and wheelchair ride along the picturesque Charles River, plus an after party with snacks and beer!

Thank You to Our Generous 2018 Sponsors!
