This year's annual charity basketball tournament is supporting The ALS Association - Greater San Diego Chapter. The Greater San Diego Chapter supports people living with ALS and their loved ones through services and education. We leave no stone unturned in search for the cure of this progressive neurodegenerative disease.
The ALS Mission: To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
Approximately 5,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. The incidence of ALS is two per 100,000 people, and it is estimated that at least 16,000 Americans may be living with ALS at any given time.
