ALS Ride For Life
ALS Ride For Life (ALSRFL) is a non-profit located in Stony Brook, New York. ALSRFL was founded 26 years ago by Chris Pendergast. When Chris was diagnosed with ALS he decided he wanted to be part of the solution and ALSRFL was founded.
Chris quickly realized patients needed a wheel-chair accessible van to get to much needed doctor appointments and to attend family events. He started lending out his personal van. As the demand grow, ALSRFL started its Mobility Matters Program. This program is the only one of its kind serving Long Island the NYC Metropolitan area.
To date ALSRFL has raised over $10 million dollars used to support research and many other patient service programs both locally and nationally.
