WHAT IS THE GLEASON CLASSIC SUPPORTING?

The purpose of this event is to raise awareness for ALS and to support the Gleason Initiative Foundation. Team Gleason is an organization driven to generate public awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), raise funding to empower those with ALS to continue living with purpose, and ultimately find a cure for ALS. 

INSPIRED BY 

Steve Gleason played for The New Orleans Saints from 2000-2008. As a counter-culture athlete who spent his off-season adventuring in third world countries, he will always be remembered for his blocked punt on the night the Louisiana Superdome reopened for the first time after Hurricane Katrina. In January 2011, Steve was diagnosed with ALS, considered a terminal neuromuscular disease. It is his mission to show that patients can not only live but thrive after this diagnosis. In doing so, he hopes to inspire others to do the same.
