Patient Services

This AMND program was developed in 2005, after our first fundraiser was held. While awareness and fundraising are crucial to the search for a cure, we also believe that expanding the quality of life for ALS patients is imperative. Through this program, we send students to different patients' homes throughout Long Island to spend time with them, and help their families around the house. The relationships we have developed with all of the ALS patients we have come into contact with are invaluable. We are their hope, they are our inspiration.

Population(s) Served

The AMND Science Research program, developed in 2006, is aimed to involve students first-hand in front-line ALS Research at facilities such as Project A.L.S. at Columbia University, Johns Hopkins Packard Center for ALS Research, ALS Therapy Development Institute, ALS Hope Foundation at Drexel Medical Center, and our very own lab at Stony Brook University Medical Center. Every summer, over 10 high school students conduct internships under the most promising ALS research scientists in the country. Many of these students go on to pursue medical research as their career.

Population(s) Served

In an innovative mission, AMND recently founded the Philanthropy Center which aims to motivate, inspire and empower students' desires to change the world. Starting this summer and continuing throughout the school year, certified teachers and experienced professionals will teach the principles and techniques of fundraising to students ranging from first grade to high school.

Population(s) Served

A Midwinter Night's Dream gala benefit for ALS began 7 years ago after a teacher in the Northport, Long Island, NY school district was diagnosed with the disease. The benefit, always held in early January at Oheka Castle, hosts over 500 guests in a most elegant environment. There is a silent auction, raffle room, live auction, dinner buffet, video presentation, and celebrity awards throughout the night. Past notable guests include NY Yankee Nick Swisher, actress Carolina Rhea, actress Edie Falco, actor Richard Kind, former NY Giant Howard Cross, former NY Yankees David Cone and Joe Pepitone, among others. The 6th annual event raised $421,000 for ALS research. The event is run entirely by high school students, and has become one of the most successful ALS fundraisers in New York.
