Team Gleason has provided over $20 million in adventure, technology, equipment, and care services to over 30,000 people living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and countless others through advocacy, support and ultimately bringing an end to the disease.
NO WHITE FLAGS. It’s the mantra that drives Team Gleason, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to serving individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) – a terminal neuromuscular disease. When Steve Gleason, a former NFL special teams player for the New Orleans Saints, was diagnosed with ALS in 2011, he made it clear that he wouldn’t give up – on himself, on his family, or on others also living with the disease.
In response to his diagnosis, Steve, along with his spouse Michel, founded Team Gleason with a mission to empower people with ALS to live purposeful lives. Team Gleason, through its diverse and broad-reaching programming, brings assistive technology, equipment, and robust support services into the hands of ALS patients – with a goal of helping individuals with ALS not just survive, but thrive after a devastating diagnosis.
To improve life for people living with ALS by delivering innovative technology and equipment, as well as providing and empowering an improved life experience.
A world where people living with ALS have the resources and the opportunities to not only continue living, but continue living productive, purposeful, and meaningful lives.
Every person has their own idea of what their dream Adventure will be. When Lisa applied for a whirlwind trip around Utah and Nevada, Team Gleason was thrilled to step in.
I especially want to thank Team Gleason for making my life dream come through. It’s cool that it was on the 1 year anniversary of being diagnosed with ALS. Worst day ever…God redeemed!!! Best day of my life!!!
