Local Events

Help Make a Difference!

Each year, The ALS Association Iowa Chapter holds several fundraising events to raise awareness and funds that help provide invaluable services to people living with ALS. Some of these events are sponsored by the Iowa Chapter, and some are third party events where our chapter is the lucky beneficiary. Our chapter receives no government or insurance funding - our mission is dependent on individual, corporate and local foundation support. Contact Emily Fish at emily@alsaiowa.org or 515.369.2574 for more details, adding your event, or how to get involved!
