Take Action. Spread Hope.
On May 16, 2020, ALS Youth Action Day — kids, teenagers, and young adults across the country will unite to take a stand against ALS. Because of COVID-19, this year’s Youth Action Day will look a little different. But you can still write letters, tell stories about your ALS hero, spread awareness through your social media accounts, or host a creative virtual event. By participating in ALS Youth Action Day, you’ll be showing the world that ALS needs to be cured.

Choose Your Action
Share Your Talent. Spread Hope.
Do you play the piano? Like to draw? There are fun ways to do what you love and raise awareness – and money – at the same time. Set up a virtual event to showcase your hobby or talents! (Don’t forget to make sure it’s okay with your parents!)
Write Letters. Spread Hope.
Contact your local members of Congress and tell them why ALS research and legislation are important to you.
Educate Others. Spread Hope.
Create a presentation to teach your class, friends, school, or any organization about ALS and how it affects your family. Share it online.
Share Your Hero. Spread Hope.
Find a picture of your ALS hero. It could be someone living with ALS, or a caregiver, scientist, or doctor participating in the fight against ALS. Post the photo to social media using both of these hashtags – #ALSHERO and #ALSYouthAction. Include a few sentences about how your ALS hero inspires you.
Use Your Imagination. Spread Hope.
Develop your own awareness or fundraising idea. Your ideas and passion are limitless. Show everyone your creativity as you help those fighting ALS!
If you are under 18, ask your mom, dad, or another adult for permission and/or to help you.
