• Program for affected by the disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
• Program for relatives of patients of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
2. CREATION OF EQUIPMENT that gives visibility to those affected and their families
• We want to create a link that a patient of ALS team up with a dog and his guide, we want to know the disease and take it wherever we are … We want to put face and name to the people who suffer it. The sick of ALS and their relatives live a daily race of effort and sacrifice, of struggle and surrender … We want to join efforts, we want to be one; In short, we want to fight with “ELAlma” (In Spanish means The Soul). At this moment we have 28 Teams trained at this moment.
• The action “Patas por la ELA” (In Spanish means paws for ALS): are sports teams and their dog together with those affected by ELA and their families. Maintaining contact throughout the training sessions and competitions up to the level of commitment that both want to acquire. It’s about getting them to be a single team that they feel and enjoy together at every moment. And so continue in the spirit of struggle and dissemination against this disease.
