The Angel Fund is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting ALS investigations at the Cecil B. Day Laboratory for Neuromuscular Research, internationally recognized for its ground-breaking work in the fight against this devastating illness.
The Angel Fund was established in 1997 by Ginny Delvecchio, herself an ALS patient. Ginny knew ALS all too well: both her mother and her brother had died of the same illness. Ginny's spirit prevailed, however, and she worked tirelessly raising awareness of ALS and funds for research until the disease robbed her of the ability to do so. She died of ALS in August of 1998.
The Angel Fund has launched a campaign for businesses to join us in the fight against ALS. Your business can help raise money for ALS research. Click here to see how.

WALK OF HOPE FOR ALS

The 13th Annual
Walk of Hope for ALS begins and ends on Wakefield’s lower Common,
on the shores of beautiful Lake Quannapowitt. The 3.5-mile level
route runs parallel to the lake, providing a picturesque walk for walkers of all ages and abilities.
Take part in the walk, raise money through pledges and donations, and
participate in activities on the Common! Refreshments will be available
for all walkers at the conclusion of the walk.
This family-friendly event raises funds that directly benefit ALS (Lou
Gehrig’s Disease) research at the Cecil B. Day Neuromuscular Lab at
the UMass Medical Center in Worcester.
We encourage you to join in this celebration of hope by walking, and
raising money, for those who are living with ALS, or in memory of
those who are no longer with us.

The Angel Fund’s support of ALS research at the Day Lab at UMass Medical Center in Worcester, under the direction of Dr. Robert H. Brown, Jr. has helped fund a critical ALS breakthrough. The gene EphA4 is the center of the research that was discovered by a Belgium doctor, Dr Brown and other researchers. Dr Brown stated that suppressing EphA4 may be a new way to treat ALS.
