in Washington, DC; Twin Cities, MN; San Francisco, CA; Boise, ID; New York, NY; Seattle, WA and Boston, MA together raised $222,600
for ALS research. This year, the Corntoss season stretched from April to August, with plenty going on in each spring and summer

2014 was a record year for the Young Faces of ALS (YFALS) National Corntoss Challenge! In its 4th consecutive year, six cities nationwide
raised $230,000 to benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS.net). Between May and August, thousands of participants in
Washington, DC; San Francisco, CA; Boise, ID; New York, NY; Seattle, WA; and Boston, MA took part in friendly competition and fundraising
on the cusp of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge phenomenon – which was initiated by two of our own YFALS Ambassadors, Pete Frates and Pat Quinn.
Especially exciting was the comeback of Boston Corntoss, which took place outside the Institute's full-scale lab space in Cambridge, MA and
featured a sold-out tournament, dunk tank, music and more!
At the closing of the 3rd consecutive Young Faces of ALS (YFALS) National Corntoss Challenge season in 2013, nearly $590,000 was
raised to benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI) over the course of three years. On various days throughout June
and July, thousands of participants fundraised over $213,000 in 2013 in six major cities: San Francisco, CA; Washington, D.C.;
Boise, ID; New York City, NY; Seattle, WA; and Chicago, IL.
The nine 2012 Corntoss Champions picked one of two dates, May 19, 2012 or June 23, 2012, and completed a
second year of successful events nationwide to benefit ALS research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute
on behalf of YFALS (Young Faces of ALS). 2012's National Corntoss Challenge Day raised over $220,000 including
in-kind donations, an increase of over $50,000 from the previous debut year. The following cities - many
dedicated cities from the previous year in collaboration with a few newcomers - participated in 2012's
Corntoss: Boston, MA; San Francisco, CA; Washington, D.C.; Boise, ID; New York City, NY; Seattle, WA;
Chicago, IL; Rapid City, SD; and Kaneohe, HI.
On June 18th, 2011, people came together across the country to join in a day of fundraising by playing the
favorite tailgate game, Cornhole (otherwise known as Bag Toss). Fourteen events took place nationwide in
Boston, MA; San Francisco, CA; Washington D.C.; Austin, TX; Baldwin City, KS; Baton Rouge, LA; Boise, ID;
Stockton, CA; New York City, NY; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; Hollywood, FL; Hilton Head, SC; and Chicago, IL.
The first annual YFALS (Young Faces of ALS) National Cornhole Challenge Day surpassed its $100,000 fundraising goal
with over $160,000 raised through sponsorships, registrations, and donations. The event generated an additional
$25,000 in generous in-kind donations from items such as food, beer, and venue costs. All proceeds were put
to work quickly at the ALS Therapy Development Institute, America's top rated ALS research organization.
