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.

Since 2011, Team Gleason has provided over $18 million in adventure, technology, equipment, and care services to over 20,000 people living with ALS in all 50 states.

As an advocate on the national stage, Team Gleason is also a credible voice and passionate advocate for driving positive change – elevating needs and recommendations to the medical device and technology industries and working closely with legislators and policymakers around necessary changes to ensure coverage evolves as technology evolves, and that cost of care is never prohibitive.
