Tar Heel Basement Systems decided to join in on the ice bucket fun and dedicated a week to pledging money to the ALS cause and getting doused with cold water. At the end of the week, THBS had a company cookout to round out the fundraising and have some company fun. Every employee came together for a great cause and ended up making a big impact. Video of the shenanigans can be seen here!
ALS Emergency Treatment Fund does not channel to third parties and does all of the work under one roof. The organization is made up of health professional volunteers dedicated to seeing patients thrive despite the many hurdles ALS may put in place. ALS-ETF focuses on the well-being of current patients and seeks to increase their chances of survival and improve their quality of life.
The organization does this by being on the forefront of medical research, offering exploratory medications and financial aid to those who need it most. Their approach has been hailed by the FDA and has been used to model the internal workings of other disease communities looking for a way to lend a hand.
