Proud to Help: Defeat ALS Recap and Raffle

This past October Tyndale’s Proud to Help Committee and Tyndale Members’ attention was focused on joining the movement to end ALS with several fundraising efforts – all proceeds went to The ALS Association (ALSA).

Throughout October Tyndale Members participated in numerous events, all of which benefited the ALS Association. On October 12th Tyndale Members participated in the Doylestown ALS Walk/Run which was organized by the Philadelphia Chapter of The ALSA. Tyndale was a corporate sponsor for this event, with members raising $1,000 and Tyndale Member participants raising an additional $180 in donations.

In Tyndale’s Pennsylvania offices a fundraising raffle was held with donated items from local business. This raised well over $2,000 dollars for ALS Research. The raffle combined with the proceeds from the ALS walk generated a grand total of $3,328!

Although October was the month Tyndale dedicated to supporting the ALS Association, the preparation work for this event was extensive. From May through October, Proud to Help Committee team member Sarah Burge reached out to local businesses to inquire about corporate sponsorships for Tyndale’s ALS raffle. Tyndale would like to give our sincere gratitude to all the participating businesses who made our fundraiser a huge success:

Established in 1985, The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting ALS on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.

Thank you to everyone who participated in these excellent events and congratulations to the Proud to Help Committee for all their hard work in providing successful events. Efforts like these are the key to discovering treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.
