Hundreds turned out to raise money to continue the fight against ALS.

Playing Hardball Against ALS or PHAALS foundation held their 5th annual golf outing and walk at the Pike Run Golf Course today. Since the foundation was founded 5 years ago, PHAALS has been able to raise enough money to give 50 thousand dollars for research for a cure for ALS, 40 thousand dollars to assist people who suffer with the disease and their families, plus another 25 thousand dollars in scholarships. Founder and former Fort Jennings Baseball Coach Jeff Swick wanted to help out after two friends of his were diagnosed with ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, and now foundation continues to grow and help others who are battling the disease. 

“Watching those gentlemen fight the disease is heartbreaking and it’s heartbreaking to watch the families go through this. I kind of put myself on that mission, and partnering with the Ohio Coaches Association and many other businesses in this area, we have been able to expand our reach to 100 different families in 15 states and all have a connect back here in Northwest Ohio," says Jeff Swick

The day concluded at the Buckeye Club in Miller City where they had raffles and auction to raise money for their three patent programs they have. If you want more information on the organization log on to PHAALS.org.
