What is ALS?
ALS is one of the most serious and debilitating nervous system disorders. The exact cause of ALS disease is not yet known. Nor are there any drugs that can stop or cure the disease. Patients have the average life expectancy of 3 to 5 years after signs of the first symptoms.
Nederland telt ongeveer 1500 ALS patiënten. Op dit moment overleeft geen enkele patiënt na de diagnose. De noodzaak tot intensiever wetenschappelijk onderzoek naar de oorzaak van ALS moet alle prioriteit krijgen. Voor dit levensreddende onderzoek is geld nodig, veel geld. Met Tour du ALS halen we geld op voor onderzoek naar ALS.

Previous editions Tour du ALS
In 2012, the first edition of Tour du ALS took place, where a small group of people decided to climb Mont Ventoux. The event has grown solid over the years, but the family sense has always been preserved. ALS patients and their loved ones are central: for and with them, hundreds of participants annually achieve a great sport achievement.
