ALS/MND Cheers Challenge Kickoff!


The Alliance General Manager, Rachel Patterson, and Alliance Chairwoman, Carol Birks, have been on a trip through Eastern Europe visiting Alliance member associations and will be ending their trip in Ljubljana, Slovenia for the European Network to Cure ALS (ENCALS) conference.

While visiting our members, Rachel and Carol created a Global Day kickoff video while in Zagreb, Croatia with our friends at the Croatian Muscular Dystrophy Association! Rachel and Carol toasted the association for all their hard work for PALS and people living with neuromuscular disorders in Croatia. Marica Miric, President of the Croatian MDA thanked Rachel and Carol for all their work and for visiting the association.

Watch the the “Cheers” video here.

What is the “ALS/MND Cheers Challenge”?

In any language, raising a glass and saying “cheers” is an expression of goodwill and camaraderie.

For Global Day 2017, we will say “cheers” to celebrate our friendships and show appreciation for our companions and colleagues who are dedicated in the global fight against ALS/MND.

On 21 June, raise your glass and make a toast to another member association, researcher, colleague, PALS or CALS, etc. Be sure to share your photo on social media with the hashtag: #ALSMNDWithoutBorders. Let’s celebrate the Alliance’s supporters, our partnerships and our collaborative efforts. We are working together for a world free of ALS/MND!
