About Us
  
We founded the Dodgin’ 4 Lou Gehrig’s Disease Dodgeball Tournament in 2011 in support of our Meadow Glens Elementary PE teacher’s wife, Denise, who was diagnosed with ALS in December 2010.  ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement.  Patients diagnosed with this disease typically have a life expectancy of 3-5 years after diagnosis.  At this time there is no cure for Lou Gehrig’s disease.

We thought an annual dodgeball tournament was a great way to get the community involved and try to make a difference.
 
In the past five years, the tournament has raised almost $100,000 for ALS research, patient/family support and education.  This year we will host our 6th annual event in honor of Denise, who lost her battle with ALS in July.  We are partnering with the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) who is leading the fight to free individuals - and the families who love them - from the harm of muscular dystrophy., ALS and related muscle-debilitating diseases that take away physical strength, independence and life.  All proceeds from the tournament will be donated to this wonderful cause.

 
Thank you for your support!
