Young Faces of ALS

YFALS National Corntoss Challenge

YFALS National Corntoss Challenge

Since 2011, the YFALS National Corntoss Challenge has successfully brought Cornhole enthusiasts along with people living with ALS and their families, friends, and supporters together for a fun-filled day of Corntoss and good company to achieve one goal: end ALS. Every dollar supports the Young Faces of ALS (YFALS) campaign, benefiting research at the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI). Help us reach our goal of $300,000 by fundraising for this year's YFALS National Corntoss Challenge!

Meet Our Ambassadors

Created in 2009 by people living with ALS who received their diagnosis before their 35th birthdays, the Young Faces of ALS (YFALS) campaign is the first community for young people afflicted by ALS, as well as their families and friends.

The purpose of the Young Faces of ALS program is to create an engaging online community of young people committed to raising awareness for ALS and to promote the work of ALS Therapy Development Institute to discover and develop effective treatments for ALS patients today.

YFALS not only accelerates research at ALS TDI through advocacy and fundraising, but has also been a catalyst to MLB© 4ALS Awareness Campaign as well as the #ALSIceBucketChallenge phenomenon of 2014.
