YOU CAN STILL DONATE

Mission
Showing the world that Virginia Beach is waging a fight of its own against ALS and other neurological diseases.

General Information
Nobody enjoys the beach more than Josh Thompson. He was an avid surfer. He loved taking his family to the beach. He grew up on the beach and thought he’d be riding his board for years to come. But in late 2006, Josh was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease. Josh had to turn his attention from riding waves to fighting ALS, a battle few so young have to face.The fight has been one of frustration.

Frustration with barriers to drug access, with as yet unsuccessful experimental treatments and with the lack of a cure. But rather than let their frustration turn to bitterness, Josh and his family have converted their frustration to a massive mobilization for the search for treatments and eventually a cure.
