The global Ice Bucket Challenge, in which people from all over the world were pouring a bucket of ice-cold water over themselves, has put ALS on the map and triggered a tsunami of research projects. With the help of our participants, volunteers and sympathizers the Ortler Sky Trails support the funding of research on ALS. And you can be a part of this!
What is ALS?
ALS or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis is one of the most tragic diseases of our times. When we have ALS the nerve cells controlling our muscles gradually break down until we lose the ability to move, speak, eat and ultimately even breathe. Living with ALS means making the best of the limited time you have, each day losing more of your abilities until you’re trapped inside of your own body, fully conscious and with all senses intact. To date there is no treatment and no cure, and ultimately no happy ending.
ALS & Ortler Sky Trails
Having been confronted with ALS in their personal life, the organizers of the Ortler Sky Trails want to use their energy and passion to create a beautiful event out of these tragic experiences where people from all over the world are united to support the research tackling this heartbreaking disease.
