Whether you're playing in the tournament or cheering the teams on from home, we hope you'll join in the fun by creating a fundraising page! Your support allows Project Main St. and Team Gleason to continue fulfilling the immediate needs of the ALS community in all 50 states.
The goal of this tournament is to raise money in the fight against ALS as inspired by Tim Sheehy. Tim fought a courageous battle against ALS before his death in 2007; and like Steve Gleason, he saw the need to help those living with ALS by providing care. He created a 501(c)(3) - Project Main St. that raised more than $1 million dollars to this mission from 2006-2016. We are fortunate Project Main St. now continues this mission in a partnership with Team Gleason.
Team Gleason is a 501(c)(3) non-profit founded by former NFL player, Steve Gleason. After being diagnosed with ALS in 2011, Steve founded Team Gleason, an organization focused on providing immediate solutions to people living with ALS through innovative technology, equipment, care services, and adventures.
For more information visit: https://projectmainst.org www.TeamGleason.org With the funds raised last year, Project Main St. & Team Gleason distributed 20 grants providing direct financial assistance covering the cost of home health care, medical and insurance expenses, and home upgrades for wheelchair accessibility.
They also helped an additional 109 people by providing 26 communication device copays, 7 Surface Pro communication devices, 16 portable power wheelchairs, 57 Model Talker Voice recordings, and sent 3 families on adventures.
Don't miss out! Kick-off the softball weekend at the Tim Sheehy Gala on Wednesday, May 27th from 6:30 - 11:00 PM at the Prince George Ballroom. Gala tickets will be available for purchase soon!
