This spirit of volunteerism also extends to our leadership. We have been fortunate to have some very bright and energetic people step forward to help plan how we might best serve the ALS community. With that in mind, we proudly announce that Melissa Marr has accepted the position of Marketing Director on the RASCALS Foundation Board of Directors.
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.
The money goes to fund promising treatment research and development. It helps with ALS family assistance, such as our annual Higher Education Scholarship program.
“I believe happiness is a choice. Some days it is a very difficult choice,” he says. “This is true for everyone. I look at the human life like an experiment. Every new moment, every new experience, tragic or otherwise, is an opportunity to gain a more accurate perspective and helps lead me to clarity.”
