Why We Row

Row4ALS Team, 2018

Row4ALS was formed when Tim Ryan and Alan Alderman got together and decided to row across the Atlantic Ocean with a team in 2018/9.

Alan, our Chief Inspiration Officer, has lived with ALS for over 20 years. Not only has he rowed across the ocean, but he also continues to support the team on their next row.

Row4ALS is a 501(c)3 nonprofit raising funds and awareness for ALS research and support.

All proceeds go to the University of Utah Clinical Neurosciences, ALS Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah.

We would like to showcase our ALS friends and family stories; if you are willing to share your story and some photos on our website and social media, please submit your information.
