Barrington Tag Days Return to Kick Off ALS Awareness Month in May

Barrington Tag Days Return to Kick Off ALS Awareness Month in May

Be on the lookout for friendly volunteers in bright yellow vests on May 3rd, 4th & 5th! Barrington will kick off the Les Turner ALS Foundation‘s month-long community Tag Days drive to mark ALS Awareness month this May. Volunteers in yellow vests will be stationed at high-traffic locations throughout town collecting donations to help find a cure.

Also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a terminal progressive disease that causes muscle weakness, difficulty speaking and swallowing and, generally, complete paralysis. ALS can, in some cases, also cause changes in intellectual function, mood, behavior or personality. Every 90 minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes, someone in the U.S. dies of ALS. While some symptoms are treatable, there is no known prevention or cure for ALS.

If you’d like to help out by volunteering during Tag Days, click here to sign up. To make a donation, click here. And, if you’d like to support Tag Days, look for a yellow-vested volunteer around town on May 3-5th. Donations will help provide the most comprehensive care to people living with ALS and their families in Chicagoland.


Founded in 1977, the Les Turner ALS Foundation is the leader in comprehensive ALS care in Chicagoland. Although we’re one of the largest independent ALS groups in the country, we treat each person like family and we’re committed to supporting them every step of the way. Our individualized approach ensures each person living with the disease receives the best quality of care, and our local community of support provides their loved ones with answers and encouragement. Our Les Turner ALS Center at Northwestern Medicine is led by the most well-respected and successful clinicians and researchers in the field, advancing vital care and research in pursuit of life-enhancing treatments and a cure.
