About the Ride to Defeat ALS®:

The Eileen Frank ALS Foundation was started in 1999 by the family and friends of Eileen Frank. After being diagnosed in 1999, Eileen lived with ALS for two years and ultimately lost her battle with the disease in January 2001.

The ride was hosted every year to honor her memory. The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter worked closely with the Eileen Frank Foundation to keep Eileen's memory alive by gathering family, friends and members of the community to help raise money for ALS research. Since 2017, the top fundraiser has received “The Eileen Frank Award” to continue the legacy of the family.

The Ride to Defeat ALS® attracts riders of all levels. The ride is staffed with dedicated and hard-working volunteers and is the only ride in the area raising money to help ALS patients and families.

Thanks to your generous past support of the Ride to Defeat ALS®, $1.8 million has been raised for the fight against ALS. 

We thank you for your generous support and continued dedication to this worthy cause.
