Your donation will make a difference! Whether you are able to attend Nana's Run on May 2, or would simply like to make a special gift in remembrance of Nana VanderLaan, any and all support counts. 


The proceeds of Nana's Run will go towards the ALS Clinic at the Mercy Health Hauenstein Neurosciences in Grand Rapids and to fund The ALS Association Michigan Chapter. The Chapter, which is a part of the national ALS Association, is working to fight Lou Gehrig's Disease on every front by funding global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships. Through Nana's Run, we hope to ensure continued support in diagnosis, treatment, and research areas.
