Mission Statement

To discover treatments and a cure for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest.

Organization History

The Rocky Mountain Chapter was founded in 1991 when a group of ALS patients, their families and other concerned citizens formed an organization to provide services and support to those citizens in Colorado afflicted with ALS. Until that date, there were few resources available in the metro Denver area to support ALS patients, their families and caregivers.

Between 1991 and 1996, The Rocky Mountain Chapter's volunteers acted as volunteer staff for the organization that worked to organize ALS Support Group meetings and ran a variety of special events to fund the purchase of much-needed medical equipment for ALS patients.

With the hopes of informing the ALS community about the activities of the Chapter and educating others on the disease, in general, this volunteer group began publishing a newsletter entitled The Voice in 1993.

A monthly e-Newsletter serves as one of the primary means by which the RMC staff and Board of Directors disseminates information to its members. The other primary means by which RMC disseminates information is through the Chapter's website at

In 1997, the local Chapter affiliated with The ALS Association and joined a national network of professionals who would work in tandem to provide greater services to the ALS community and would also agree to allocate financial support to fund ALS-specific research.
