We are a 100% all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. No one takes a paycheck here and there are no administrative costs. That means 100% of all funds raised by the R.A.S.C.A.L.S. Foundation go directly to fighting ALS.

Ascherio and his team analyzed data from five long-running studies that collectively contained more than one million participants. Nutrition habits and presence of health problems examined closely by researchers to see if food consumption had an impact on ALS development. Previous studies suggest that individuals with a high intake of antioxidants, in particular vitamin E, may be less likely to develop ALS.
“Our findings suggest that [eating] carotenoid-rich foods could help prevent or delay the onset of [amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)],” says researcher Kathryn C. Fitzgerald, a doctoral student in the department of nutrition at Harvard School of Public Health in Boston.

THIS IS OUR YEAR.
THIS IS OUR MOMENT.
THIS IS THE TIME TO STEP UP AGAINST ALS.
Researchers continue to make breakthroughs in understanding how ALS functions.
There’s also been some promising news about potential treatments.
That’s why now is the time to swing for the fences.
So please dig in, dig deep, and make a donation to the RASCALS Foundation.

But this isn’t just about celebrating the success an organization; it’s about celebrating the people that define those successes — you.
