“Strike Out ALS!,” a fundraiser for the ALS Association—MD, VA, DC Chapter, was held at the April 19 Tribe baseball game against Virginia Commonwealth University at Plumeri Park. The event was a collaboration between Circle K International at the College and Tribe Athletics.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a neurodegenerative disease that is currently without a cure.

Local businesses donated $14 to the ALS Association for every student that came to the game, and proceeds from tickets sold to non-students also went to the association. A total of 829 people came to Saturday’s game, filling the stands, cheering the Tribe on to a victory over VCU, and raising over $5,000 for the ALS Association.
