Welcome to Amanda Swanson's Personal Page
On April 4, 2021, my uncle, Jim, passed away after a brief and courageous fight against ALS. My Uncle Jim had a zest for life and was passionate about fishing. I fondly remember days spent at the lake, sitting on the dock and casting lines with my uncle until the dinner bell rang.
This year, I’m participating in the Kolar ALS fishing tournament in his honor and hoping to raise $1000 to benefit individuals living with ALS and their families.
ALS is a progressive neuro-degenerative disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. It usually strikes people between the ages of 40-70, but it can strike anyone at any time. Although there is no cure or treatment yet, tournament organizers are committed to helping families in need.
Please help me achieve my goal by donating to the cause. I can’t do it without you!

What Do You Do Next...
You can help simply by making a charitable contribution. It's as easy as a click of the mouse. Know that you are helping people with ALS live with as much dignity as possible. Know that you are making a difference in so many lives.
Company Match Opportunities...
Corporate matching gifts are a type of philanthropy in which companies financially match donations that their employees make to nonprofit organizations. When an employee makes a donation, they'll request the matching gift from their employer, who then makes their own donation. Check to see if your employer will match your donation. We have links on our website that make this process very easy!
