On February 5, 2015, LiveLikeLou.org and the University of Pittsburgh announced the formation of the Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research. The new center focuses both on developing new treatments and on improving the quality of life for people who are now living with the progressive, degenerative neurological condition. The ultimate goal: a cure for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

To fund this research center LiveLikeLou.org has pledged to raise $2.5 million dollars over the next five years. Donut Dash is honored to be a part of that initiative by pledging to raise $500,000 in contribution to LiveLikeLou.org’s pledge in honor of our beloved alumni advisor, Bob Dax, who died from ALS in 2017.
