Team AcuraStem is honored to continue its partnership with Team Nanci and the ALS Association Golden West Chapter in the fight against ALS as a sponsor of the Greater Los Angeles Walk to Defeat ALS® on Sunday, November 6, at Exposition Park in Los Angeles.
We’ll be walking with Team Nanci and be on hand at the AcuraStem booth to talk with patients and families affected by ALS about AcuraStem’s mission and pioneering work in patient-based therapeutics. Come by our booth and show your support!
Proceeds from the LA Walk support the mission of the ALS Association Golden West Chapter to discover treatments and cures for ALS, and to serve, advocate for, and empower people affected by ALS to live their lives to the fullest. The Golden West Chapter serves people with ALS and their families in 31 counties throughout California and in the state of Hawaii. The tireless work they do advances the search for effective treatments and cures for ALS and we are honored to walk with them and help raise money and awareness again this year.
Team Nanci was founded by the friends and family of legendary publicist Nanci Ryder. Ryder, who passed away in 2020, was co-founder of BWR Public Relations and a prominent publicist in Los Angeles for more than 30 years. Diagnosed with ALS in 2014 she became a tireless advocate for ALS awareness and research. In 2018, Ryder was honored with the Walk Hero Award for her courageous and inspirational efforts in the areas of advocacy, fundraising and public awareness while living with ALS. AcuraStem continues to support Nanci’s dream of putting an end to ALS. To learn more and make a gift in support, please visit: teamnanci.org.
