The Team Gleason Foundation was established by former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason to serve those afflicted with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). Gleason was diagnosed with ALS in 2011. He will always be remembered for his blocked punt against the Atlanta Falcons on the Monday night the Louisiana Superdome reopened for the first time after Hurricane Katrina. The mission of the organization is to (1) help provide individuals with leading edge technology, equipment and services; (2) create a global conversation about ALS to ultimately find solutions and an end to the disease; (3) to raise public awareness toward ALS by providing and documenting extraordinary life adventures for individuals with muscular disease or injuries.
