The inaugural Arrest and Extinguish ALS Event Saturday, May 18, 2019 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM Tanglewood in Lenox, MA.
Arrest and Extinguish ALS is a fundraising and awareness campaign started by two first responders with ALS — Lee, MA Chief of Police, Jeffery Roosa and former Deputy Chief of the Pittsfield, MA Fire Department, Michael Polidoro. Both men have dedicated their lives in service of others, and since being diagnosed with ALS, they have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from their colleagues and local community. They are now hoping to harness this support to raise awareness and funds for ALS research.
Jeff and Mike are challenging first responders across the country to get involved by hosting an ALS Arrest & Extinguish fundraiser in their local area to benefit the ALS Therapy Development Institute (ALS TDI).
