Thank you for helping our team reach our Ride to Defeat ALS fundraising goal!
Our Drafters team represents two wonderful men whose lives were ended by ALS way too soon.
Donnie Graham, Jr - Donnie passed away in October 2022 after living with ALS for eight years.
Rasjad Lints - Rasjad passed away in January 2016 after living with ALS for one year.
Their connection - Rasjad's wife, Susannah, let Donnie ride Rasjad's electric trike in the 2016 Ride to Defeat ALS. The photo above shows Susannah and Donnie together that year.
This ALS community supports each other in wonderful ways!
Throughout the State of Oregon and the six counties of SW Washington, The ALS Association’s local chapter exists to provide critical programs and care services, free of charge, such as, but not limited to:
  • On-staff Care Services Coordinators who offer individual support and home visits to assess needs, suggest equipment, connect with local resources and help families plan.
  • ALS Association Certified Centers of Excellence and Clinic partnerships with Providence Brain & Spine Institute, Portland VA Health System, OHSU, Kaiser Permanente, St. Charles Health System, The Center and Asante Health System.
  • Medical Equipment Program in partnership with Numotion and Norco Medical to loan equipment to aid in daily living activities and with mobility.
  • Chapter Grant Program that funds a myriad of reimbursable, ALS-related expenses such as respite care, counseling, co-pays for healthcare costs, home modifications, and more.
  • Monthly Support Group Program for people living with ALS, family members, and friends.
  • Support and resources for children, in partnership with The Dougy Center, who have ALS in their families.
