Welcome to the ALS Soccer Shootout! 770.757.5198info@alssoccershootout.com

A.L.S. is not an incurable disease,
it is an underfunded disease.

What are you Donating to?

A foundation that is putting on an annual soccer tournament honoring Marilyn Blankinship, who was diagnosed with ALS (aka Lou Gehrig’s Disease) in December of 2015. This is the only soccer tournament in the state of NC, which has set out to raise money and awareness for a terrible disease that robs people the ability to walk, talk, and eventually breathe. The ALS Soccer Shootout will take place this year on July 16th in Raleigh, NC. This is more than just a soccer tournament!

About Marilyn

To know Marilyn Blankinship is to know your own mother, your grandmother, your sister, your wife, or your best friend. She plays all of these roles, and she lives for all these roles. She cares for everyone and everything. In the spirit of great karmic return, we wanted to do something to show Marilyn how much her love makes us want to fight for her life. This is more than just an annual soccer tournament in her name. This is a way for people to come together from all over the state to help raise money and awareness. A.L.S. is not an incurable disease, it is an underfunded disease.

Why Sponsor Us?

1. Make a Difference – Who doesn’t want to make a difference? We all do. The reality is, we rarely make the time to do so. Here is your chance. Let us advertise your business for this special cause and help us make a difference in the fight to understand and combat A.L.S.

2. Humanize the Disease – Every disease is just another disease to someone who doesn’t know a loved one with the affliction. With your help, and Marilyn’s story, we can help humanize Lou Gehrig’s Disease by putting a (wonderful) face behind it. Social media, web, print, banners, etc… Marilyn Blankinship and her story will help your brand reach a new and caring audience.

3. Spread Awareness – Your support helps us spread general awareness about A.L.S., as well as facilitating new research and public information. In conjunction with the A.L.S. Association, our tournament will make pointed efforts to educate and inform the participating tournament goers about A.L.S., and how they can become proactive in raising awareness themselves. What a great cause to have your brand behind!
