Accelerating Research for ALS

Ilana G.

I joined Prize4Life's campaign as a Champion, to help accelerate research for ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease.

I have an amazing friend, Avi that has ALS for quite a few years now and he created Prize4Life to accelerate finding a cure for ALS. Some of you may remember my campaign for him several years ago.

With the money we raised some time back, Prize4Life managed to give a $1M prize for the innovation that got us closer to understanding the disease. This encouraged many innovations and the winner found a way to measure the progress of the disease. A vital first step to finding a cure. We want to promote more research in 2012 and your help is needed.

Avi, my friend, was awarded by the Israeli prime minister for his innovation and fight for ALS. Please help to make it happen. Your donations are going 100% to the cause.

Avi Kremer Wins Israeli Prime Minister's Prize

 
 

October 18, 2011

The Israeli Office of the Prime Minister recently announced it would be awarding Prize4Life CEO and co-founder Avi Kremer with the "Prime Minister's Prize for Initiatives and Innovations Not for Profit."

The Prizes are designed to encourage and promote innovative and creative thinking in business ventures that have the potential to inspire significant changes in science, technology and society. "I am flattered and humbled to receive this prize," said Avi Kremer, "The decision of the distinguished national committee is a testament to the innovation and impact of the Prize4Life model—an efficient and results-oriented model that has already proven its worth in helping to advance ALS research. This prize belongs to the thousands of people who have supported Prize4Life since its founding as much as it belongs to me."

Read a release detailing the award from the office of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu here.

The Prime Minister's Prizes will be awarded for the second time in history during a ceremony at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel on November 15, 2011 as part of Israel's participation in Global Entrepreneurship Week. More than one hundred countries will take part in the roundtable conferences and collaborative sessions highlighting entrepreneurship worldwide from November 14-20, 2011.
