About Us

The ALS Therapy Alliance (ATA) was established in 2000 to fund leading-edge research projects and find a cure for ALS, a debilitating and deadly disease. The ATA's mission is to raise funds for - and awareness about - ALS through partnerships, fundraisers, events, and its annual Breakthrough ALS campaign.

The global ATA network includes some of the most brilliant minds in the scientific and medical fields, including two Nobel laureates. This unique, collaborative effort spans multiple laboratories, universities and disciplines around the world. To date, the ATA and its partners - including CVS/pharmacy, the largest corporate donor to ALS research in the U.S. - has raised more than $30 million to help find a cure for this devastating and fatal disease.


The Breakthrough ALS fundraising campaign was established in 2013 by the ALS Therapy Alliance (ATA) to replace their Researching a Cure campaign, which ran successfully for 11 years.

The new campaign name is a bold call to action. Through this initiative, the ATA is galvanizing partners, sponsors and the community to fundraise, spread the word and, ultimately, find a cure.

Join the fight today and help us Breakthrough ALS.
