- Financial assistance helps ALS families keep their children in extra-curricular activities.
- $500 per child per year.
The Support for Champions Program is the result of the love and concern of the late Gilles LeBlanc. A father himself, Gilles believed that the children of families living with ALS needed to live life as normally as possible. He was concerned that the financial challenges of the disease may prevent families from enrolling children in extra-curricular activities and secondary education.
