Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a motor neuron disease. Lou Gehrig brought worldwide attention to the disease in 1939, when he abruptly retired from baseball after his ALS diagnosis. The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter provides education, guidance, services and support to ALS patients, their families and caregivers, promotes public awareness and raises funds for ALS research. Supporter TJ Kammien also threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
