State Senator Stephanie Kunze joined The ALS Association Central & Southern Ohio Chapter and the Columbus Clippers on June 25, 2019 at Huntington Park to help Strike Out ALSTM. This years honoree was Jim Fortier who was diagnosed with ALS in 2012. The purpose of the Strike Out ALS event is to raise awareness about ALS and funding to support the Association’s services to people who are battling the disease and research to find a cure. Joining Jim on the field were his wife Mickie, Brett, his wife Sarah, and their children, Jack and AJ, and daughter Lauren, and her husband Justin and their children, Jonas and Eve, Senator Kunze, Board Member Mark Stack and ALS Chapter staff. Jim’s entire family has played an active role in building awareness and raising funds to battle this insidious disease. They participate in ALS Chapter Meetings, have led local ALS Fundraisers - including the all-important, COLUMBUS WALK TO DEFEAT ALS, held in September 22nd at Coffman Park this year - and have attended every local event. Senator kunze was instrumental along with Representative Ryan Smith in introducing legislation which will create an ALS Awareness License Plate.
Brett Fortier threw out the first pitch to begin the game and set the tone to STRIKE OUT ALS!!
We would like to thank ITF Pharma for sponsoring our Strike Out ALS™ event with the Cincinnati Reds on July 21, 2019 at the Great American Ballpark. ITF’s Vinh Nguyen and family joined the ALS team down on the field for the first pitch to honor Paul Rinderknect. Paul was diagnosed with ALS in 2016 at age 42.
ITF Pharma is a U.S.-based specialty pharmaceutical company committed to investing in and commercializing impactful medicines in therapeutic areas with unfulfilled needs. ITF received FDA-approval on September 6, 2018, for TIGLUTIK™, the first and only liquid oral suspension of riluzole for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
