“Today brought out a lot of emotions for me,” said Dave Flamand. “I hope we can raise some extra money this year for this very important cause. The ALS Society is an extremely important foundation, and I want to thank MCAC for this decision.”
“My sister would always say that ‘what we do in this life matters.’ This support can do just that. It matters.”

The ALS Society of Alberta is a non-profit organization dedicated to making each day the best possible day for people living with and affected by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). It is the only non-profit organization in Alberta that provides support to those affected by the disease, and is the largest donor per-capita to the national ALS research program.

Their mission is to make each day the best possible day for people living with and affected by ALS.

They achieve this by:

  • providing support
  • facilitating the provision of care
  • promoting awareness
  • helping find a cure
  • advocating for change
