Background


Madison Scouts Alum Steve Weekes founded "Rockin' For A Cure" and asked that the event be carried on with these fundamental ingredients:


   Live Music

   ALS Awareness

  Friends, Family, Volunteers

   Engagement of Local ALS Patient Community 

   Donations for Patient Support & Research Funds

   Madison Scouts Brotherhood
 

The Rockin' For A Cure Organizing Committee has taken Steve's vision and built an honorable tradition with the assistance of the Madison Scouts and many great ALS organizations, including the Muscular Dystrophy  Association, The ALS Therapy Development Fund, and The ALS Association Wisconsin Chapter. 

Rockin' For A Cure is committed to:

  1. Building an ALS Community around this event, based on the synergy of the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps, the Alumni, and the ALS Community in Madison and surrounding communities.

  2. Promoting ALS awareness with literature and guest speakers.

  3. Donating proceeds to ALS research and patient support. 

  4. Supporting and honoring the Weekes' Family for their caregiving efforts for our dear friend, Steve.

  5. Honoring the lives of other Madison Scouts Alumni who are casualties of ALS.
