Bring the whole family to ice skate for ALS!

On Monday, February 17, 2014 young supporters of the ALS Therapy Development Institute (and the young at heart) will gather at Community Ice Skating @Kendall in Cambridge, MA from 9-11am to skate laps in honor of PALS (People with ALS) at ALS Skatefest.

Family, teachers, and friends - or "sponsors" - will be asked to donate per lap. If a skater pledges 10 laps and is promised $2 per lap by two parents and a teacher, that's $60 toward life changing research at ALS TDI for PALS. Sponsor a child today to help us stop ALS!

For more information and tips on fundraising, please download the ALS Skatefest Fundraising Packet.

Please note: all minors (participants under 18) who fundraise must have a Fundraising Guidelines form and all Fundraising Forms signed by a parent or guardian. All forms are available for download by clicking the ALS Skatefest Fundraising Packet button above.

The top fundraiser will be able to choose the prize of his or her choice! The second top fundraiser will win the remaining prize. See below for choices.

  • Four tickets to Canobie Lake Park in Salem, NH for the 2014 season.
  • Whale Watch Family Four pack (Two Adults, 2 Children) available through Boston Harbor Cruises.

What is ALS?

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease, is a neurodegenerative disorder that paralyzes the body but leaves the mind intact. Patients, on average, live between two to five years. There is currently no known cause, cure or effective treatment for the disease. To learn more about ALS, please visit
