Thank you for joining us for LiveLikeLou's second annual Shootout 4 ALS last week!
It was great to see so many new and familiar faces at the Nashville Gun Club on Friday. Thank you for taking the time to join us and support the LiveLikeLou Foundation's efforts to fund ALS research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
Together, we raised nearly $50,000 towards the It’s a Whole New Ballgame for ALS Research campaign to fund dedicated research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. You showed up and delivered big for this cause, and we are grateful!
LiveLikeLou’s commitment is to help fund Middle Tennessee's largest investment in ALS discovery for this disease that needs more ‘at bats’ to find meaningful treatments and cures. We are close to meeting our phase one goal of $3.5 million to help recruit a translational scientist to serve as VUMC’s new Director of ALS Research. This person, the experts they hire, and lab equipment they deploy will be charged with leading new pre-clinical science investigations and supporting the ALS clinical practice.
We won’t stop until this disease is struck out, so stay tuned for more information and opportunities to engage with LiveLikeLou soon.
If you are interested in volunteering as part of a Shootout planning committee for 2023, please email us!
