Hoopfest is an annual event from EF Wallengren Fund, a nonprofit organization affiliated with the ALS Association whose purpose is to cater to the needs of over thirty thousand people suffering from ALS all across the nation. EF Wallengren Fundis responsible for raising awareness of ALS, making information available regarding research trials, engaging in community and corporate outreach programs, sponsoring a series of sporting events to raise funds for ALS research, and helping Lou Gehrig’s disease patients live their lives with dignity, acceptance, honor, and humor.
“We are excited to be involved in sponsoring this amazing event for the second year in a row. It’s organizations like EF Wallengren Fund for ALS Research that bring help, awareness and hope,” said Market It Media Founder Marci Rosenblum.
The organization was created in honor of Ernie Wallengren, a multiple award-winning American television producer after being diagnosed with ALS. Although he struggled as the disease progressed, Wallengren persisted and inspired others with his optimism. He was a spokesman for all ALS sufferers by contributing time and effort toward ALS research and the development of a cure.
“Live with hope and keep those dreams alive!” –Ernie Wallengren
