Team Gleason is an organization driven to generate public awareness for Amyothrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), raise funding to empower those with ALS to live a rewarding life, and ultimately find a cure for ALS. Team Gleason consists of two components:

1.The Gleason Initiative Foundation – a 501c3 working to help others with ALS
2. Gleason Family Trust – for those wanting to directly support Steve & his family


The purpose of The Louisiana Hospitality Foundation event is to raise awareness for ALS and to support the Gleason Family Trust. The Gleason Family Trust is set up to help offset the incremental costs of living with ALS. Contributions go toward Steve’s participation in advanced and experimental technology, equipment and treatments.
