Recently, AWG Cares provided a grant in the amount of $3,000 to Team Gleason in New Orleans, LA. The grant request was submitted by Melanie Jarrow, AWG Gulf Coast employee.


Team Gleason is an organization dedicated to serving individuals with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), a terminal neuromuscular disease. When Steve Gleason, a former NFL special teams player for the New Orleans Saints, was diagnosed with ALS in 2011, he made it clear that he wouldn’t give up—on himself, on his family, or on others also living with the disease.


In response to his diagnosis, Steve and his wife Michel founded Team Gleason to empower people with ALS to live purposeful lives. Team Gleason, through its diverse and broad-reaching programming, brings assistive technology, equipment, and robust support services into the hands of ALS patients – with a goal of helping individuals with ALS not just survive but thrive after a devastating diagnosis.


Thank you, Melanie, for donating to AWG Cares and submitting this grant request!
