Where Does the Money Go?
The money raised at the Ride to Defeat ALS stays in Massachusetts, to provide services for ALS patients such as:
$75- can give a patient a loaned wheelchair delivery
$80- can pay for a transfer tub bench to enable a patient to go from a wheelchair to a bathtub
$120- can pay for a transport wheelchair that enables patients to travel outside of the house. They fold for easy packing in a car or other modes of travel.
$175- can pay for a manual wheelchair for patients in the early stage of ALS
$200- can provide a monthly support group and/or professional insurance and benefits counseling for patients
$7500- can provide professional staff to attend and support the bi-monthly Curt and Shonda Schilling ALS Clinic at Lahey Hospital & Medical Center per year.
