Funding the Fight Against ALS:

Proceeds from the Black Wood Blizzard Tour benefit individuals living with ALS and their families. ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. ALS 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, advances in scientific research have made significant progress in understanding what causes ALS. In both 2020 and 2021, Never Surrender Inc donated over $1 million in the Fight Against ALS.
