All Donations Fund Breakthrough Research

A Long Swim has the largest impact by directly supporting breakthrough ALS research. The Ozdinler Lab at Northwestern University is changing the game, making large advancements in the fight against ALS. Working to understand the cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for early vulnerability and progressive degeneration of upper motor neurons, they are the team behind that recently discovered the NU-9 compound–which has proven to reverse neuron damage.

All proceeds go directly to fund the research of Dr. Pembe Hande Ozdinler’s research. To date, we have raised over $1 million dollars to the cause, and we are not stopping swimming until we meet an ALS survivor on the shore.
