Every year, on June 21st, the International Alliance of ALS/MND Associations observes an important day of recognition for ALS/MND—a disease that impacts individuals in every country across the globe. This global awareness day serves as a rallying point to unite people worldwide in the fight against ALS/MND and shed light on the challenges faced by those affected by this devastating disease.

Uniting the World Against ALS/MND

ALS/MND knows no boundaries or borders. It affects people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and regions. The day of global recognition aims to bring attention to the urgent need for support, understanding, and progress in addressing this debilitating condition. 

Why June 21st?

June 21st holds special significance as a solstice, representing a turning point. On this day, the ALS/MND community engages in various activities to symbolize their hope for progress in finding the cause, treatment, and cure for ALS/MND. In addition, it serves as a rallying point for renewed determination and a shared vision of a world free from the constraints of this debilitating disease.
