June isALS Aware­ness Month. Now more than ever, we believe that we must remain united in adver­sity. Take action this June to help us ful­fill our com­mon mis­sion: to offer hope for a future with­out ALS, to sup­port our fam­i­lies and to fund promis­ing research projects

§ June 1st — Light a candle

But before we take action, let’s take a moment to step back and think about our pur­pose. We do what we do to honor and sup­port fam­i­lies affected by ALS as we carry the mem­ory of those we have lost. Your sup­port inspires us every day to give the best of ourselves.

On Tues­day, June 1st, light a can­dle in honor or in memory

of some­one affected by ALS.

Make this sym­bolic ges­ture to shine the light on ALS and share it on social media to raise aware­ness within your net­work. Post a pic­ture of your can­dle using hash­tags#ALSAware­ness­Monthand#Strike­OutALSand tag us@SLA_ALS_Quebec.
