Team Gleason is committed to providing for and finding solutions for those living with ALS and other related neuromuscular diseases. Our focus is on those with ALS and also those who care for them. Team Gleason’s small staff and volunteers work tirelessly every day to empower those living with ALS to live with continued purpose and as productively and independently as possible.
Team Gleason is a recognized charitable 501c3 non-profit corporation with the mission to: Help provide individuals with neuromuscular diseases or injuries with leading edge technology, equipment and services.
To create a global conversation about ALS to ultimately find continued solutions and an end to the disease.
To raise public awareness toward ALS by providing and documenting extraordinary life adventures for individuals with muscular diseases or injuries.
Since Team Gleason’s inception, the group has had a significant impact on the lives of countless people living with ALS. While the organization has spent millions of dollars providing equipment, technology, services, care, life changing adventures and more, the impact of the group goes well beyond its direct mission. In 2015, the Steve Gleason Act was signed into law, ensuring access to all people who need assistive communication devices. The following year, the film, ‘Gleason’ was released to outstanding reviews at the Sundance Film Festival and was in the top 15 films considered for an Academy Award.
Steve and Team Gleason continue to push the boundaries of what is possible in living with ALS. Whether it be partnering with the world’s largest tech companies, challenging legislation, innovating for new technology or creating life changing experiences, the group strives to find solutions where others see only problems.
In one of Team Gleason’s first meetings, Steve declared, “there will be No White Flags”. He meant it and so do we.
