In 2009, Rockin' For A Cure partnered with The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter. All proceeds of this event go directly to the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter to fund patient services at Froedtert Hospital throughout Wisconsin, as well funding local ALS research projects like those underway at the Waisman Center and the Medical College of Wisconsin. In recent months, Rockin' For A Cure has begun working closely with Susie Reed, the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter's Third Party Fundraising Event Liaison, to coordinate promotion of the event through the resources at the ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter. In fact, members of the Organizing Committee from Rockin' For A Cure recently volunteered at the Milwaukee "Walk to Defeat ALS," "An Evening of Hope," and "ALS-Brewers Tailgate." These events have been tremendous and we encourage anyone interested in attending or volunteering to contact Susie Reed through the links below.

Waisman Center

Proceeds of Rockin' For A Cure help fund projects at the Waisman Center in Madison, Wis. 

From their website:

Interest in stem cell biology has exploded over the last few years due to the remarkable potential they hold as a source of tissue for in vitro studies, and repairing damaged tissues following disease or trauma. Simultaneously, breakthrough research on the human brain has shown that that brain tissue may be far more "plastic" than we ever imagined.

The Waisman Center's new Stem Cell Research Program is committed to exploring the potential of stem cells in the context of this new image of the human brain, with the ultimate goal of developing innovative approaches to treating neurological disease. Our new program involves research on multiple scientific tracks in tandem, including research involving neural stem cells derived from several different sources, such as fetal tissue and embryonic stem cells. Our new scientists are collaborating with our growing program in gene therapy research exploring the potential of combining stem cell and gene therapy to repair and recover function in diseases that include Parkinson's disease, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), stroke, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological and developmental disorders.
