Businesses can treat their employees to a fun baseball matchup and contribute to an important cause by participating in the annual "All 4 Lou Showdown: Striking Out Lou Gehrig’s Disease" event on Tuesday, March 19, at 6 p.m.
The All 4 Lou Showdown will feature the Vanderbilt Commodores men’s baseball team as they take on their cross-town rivals, the Belmont Bruins, at First Horizon Park. Tickets are now on sale for $10, with $4 from each ticket sold benefiting the Live Like Lou Fund for ALS Research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, focused on defeating ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease.
More About the Cause
Evan Campa, a 41-year-old mother of two, was diagnosed in 2018 with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, the most common motor neuron disease in adults. Amid traveling to participate in clinical trials, Evan and her family—husband, Eben, and children, Mae, 7, and Reuben, 5—have teamed up with Vanderbilt Health and the Live Like Lou Foundation to bring an ALS basic science research program to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
“We’ve joined this effort because we want to do whatever we can to help further ALS in a positive direction toward treatment and cures and more hope for people.”
