Michael R Myers Legacy Social Postponed Until 2021

The Michael R Myers Memorial Board has been continually monitoring state and local ordinances. After careful consideration, and out of the utmost caution for our attendees, volunteers, ALS patients and their families, we are postponing the 2020 Legacy Social. The 2020 Memorial Classic will still happen, just at a delayed date of Thursday, September 24, 2020.

As you know, the Michael R Myers Memorial events provide much-needed funds to support The ALS Association, Iowa Chapter - providing individuals living with ALS with the technology, equipment, care services, and support needed to live a purposeful and productive life. We are currently exploring other avenues to raise these much-needed funds. We will continue to provide opportunities for you to stay connected and to support the mission of The ALS Association, Iowa Chapter.

We look forward to celebrating the return of the Legacy Social in the Summer of 2021!

Thank you all so much for your continued love & support of #MRM4ALS and the ALS Community!

What is ALS?

ALS was first found in 1869 by French neurologist Jean-Martin Charcot, but it wasn’t until 1939 that Lou Gehrig brought national and international attention to the disease. Ending the career of one of the most beloved baseball players of all time, the disease is still most closely associated with his name. Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed.
