About Team Gleason

Team Gleason Foundation was founded by former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason after his diagnosis with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) in 2011. Team Gleason’s mission is to improve life for people living with ALS by delivering innovative technology and equipment and providing and empowering an improved life experience.
