Team Ernst – Help Us Take The Fight to ALS.
Thank you for visiting the Team Ernst website. On February 5, 2013, Anthony “Michael” Ernst, a former standout football player at Harvard University in the early 80's, was formally diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
This horrific disease has no known cure and takes a mighty toll on not just the individual but families, loved ones, friends and entire villages of which the afflicted is a part. That is the case with the Ernst family. However, following the courageous lead of Mike himself, a band of supporters of Mike and his family have formed “Team Ernst” to battle this affliction head-on.
The undaunted spirt and courage of Mike Ernst is the inspiration of Team Ernst, whose mission is clear: (a) to tell Mike’s story; (b) to increase the awareness of ALS; (c) to raise funds for Mike’s family, business and medical expenses; and (d) to raise money and awareness to find better treatment and a cure for ALS.
Thank you for your support and please join our Team and help us in our fight for Mike and our mission to find a cure for ALS.
To provide financial support, moral support and stability & to provide the best options for care to Mike & the Ernst Family as Mike's ALS condition progresses.
We want to tell Mike's life story, and his story with ALS. This disease is often misunderstood and in many ways virtually unknown by the general public. The grueling impact this disease has on communities and families creates a chasm between By rallying public awareness, we will rally support to eliminate ALS! We will be orchestrating several public awareness events to accomplish this work.
