The ALS Association recognizes that the success of its mission is directly attributable to individuals who enrich the community, educate and inspire others, and serve the people and families battling ALS. The purpose of The Lawrence A. Rand Prize is to recognize and honor those individuals.
The Lawrence A. Rand Prize was established by Lawrence A. Rand, former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of The ALS Association. Having been personally affected — ALS took the lives of his father-in-law, sister-in-law, and his wife, Madelon — Mr. Rand played a major role in laying the cornerstone of what is now The ALS Association and has accomplished tremendous things for patients and families diagnosed with ALS.
In November 2013, the ALS Association announced that Jim Eutizzi of Waukesha, WI had won the prize. He was honored at a ceremony in San Diego, CA in February 2014.
ALS is a brutal disease that robs patients of all muscle and body control. Eventually every patient diagnosed with ALS loses the ability to walk, eat and even breathe. Despite advances in treatment and therapies, there is no cure. ALS is fatal.
