CAROL’S CREW SUPPORTS PROJECT A.L.S.

The Hines Rowing Center & Whitemarsh Boat Club have formed Carol’s Crew in support of founding member Carol Kleiner who is living with A.L.S. Our goal is to raise awareness of ALS & raise funds to support research for a cure through Project A.L.S.

WHAT IS A.L.S.?

A.L.S., also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a disease that targets motor neuron cells in the brain & spinal cord. As motor neurons die, a person progressively loses the ability to walk, speak, swallow, & breathe. ALS is usually fatal within 2-5 years of diagnosis.

WHY SUPPORT PROJECT A.L.S.?

Project A.L.S. identifies & funds the most promising scientific research that will lead to the first effective treatments & a cure for A.L.S. The new paradigm for brain disease research, Project A.L.S. recruits the world’s best scientists and doctors to work together, rationally and aggressively, toward a better understanding of the A.L.S. disease process & better therapeutic strategies.
