Run for ALD, Cure the Boys is a homegrown event, the only one of its kind in the St. Louis area that raises awareness and funds for adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). ALD is a very progressive disease that affects about 1 in 18,000 boys, many of whom suffer severe neurological symptoms that often result in death if undiagnosed and not treated very early. Our event is inspired by the vision of our son Nicholas who had a successful bone marrow transplant to treat his cerebral ALD at the University of Minnesota Children's Hospital in 2016. All funds raised from Run for ALD will benefit the University of Minnesota's ALD Research Fund to support efforts for early identification, treatment options, and hopefully one day a cure for this devastating disease. Please join us for our 5K run/one mile walk along scenic Creve Coeur Lake for this very special cause to help Cure the Boys!
