Curt Schilling always says, "What if your dollar…or your friend's dollar…or your co-worker's dollar was THE DOLLAR that put us over the top to identify the cause and cure for Lou Gehrig's disease?"

Program Overview

One Dollar Difference offers a platform to host fun and creative events to support The ALS Association. No matter where you live or the time of year, anyone can host an event to help in our fight to cure and treat Lou Gehrig's Disease.

How it Works

Using our online fundraising program, organizers and participants can promote and fundraise for their event anywhere at anytime.
