Why ALS?

In 2007, tenured LOUYAA Volunteer and Parent, Ken Hartsek noticed symptoms of ALS. In 2008, the University of Maryland diagnosed Ken with the disease. Although devastating to Ken and his family, they have remained strong through his battle and fight this disease every day.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), is often referred to as 'Lou Gehrig's Disease,' the great Yankee baseball player. Thus, the disease has been associated with our sport for two centuries. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year and it is estimated as many as 30,000 Americans may have the disease at any given time.

There is no known cure.

The Hartsek family resides in Kemptown where their children attended Kemptown Elementary and now Urbana HS. They have spent many years on the Kemptown and Utica baseball fields donating their time as volunteers and watching their son play baseball. Ken quickly became involved as one of our most committed volunteers, to include

being the Concessions Coordinator for LOUYAA. He was a rock behind the scenes for concessions and always there to help and support the players and families of LOUYAA.

Please help the Hartsek family continue to raise funds for this debilitating disease and the research to find a treatment or cure.

ALS TDI Golf is a fundraising campaign of the ALS Therapy Development Institute, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit biotech located in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
