We raise money for ALS research. In fourth and fifth grade we had an assembly with Chris Pendergast, who has been fighting ALS for a long time.

Last May, Chris led the 19th Annual ALS Ride for Life through Riverhead. Chris was diagonosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in 1993.

He inspired us to create our business called Find a Cure. Visit our website at We sell baked goods and crafts all under $1. So far we have raised $150.

Feel free to contact us with any ideas or anything you may want with the email from our website. Our goal is $1,000. We know we have a long way to go, but together we can achieve it.
