Share our #EndALSTogether Posts:
This year, our mission is to show that a collective effort is needed to end ALS. To do this, we will be sharing examples of how people in the community are making a difference - directly or indirectly - in the fight against this disease. We want to demonstrate how anyone - no matter, if they have any personal ties to ALS or not - can get involved and have an impact.
How can you help? Follow us on social and share our posts throughout the month.
- Be sure to tag @ALSTDI when posting on different social sites so we can share your photos/videos/blogs.
- You can use hashtag #1in400, #ALSAwarenessMonth, and #EndALSTogether in your posts to spread awareness.
