Application for project grant for ALS research
Börje Salming is one of Sweden's greatest ice hockey players of all time and broke through in Brynäs in the early 1970s. In 1973, Salming left Sweden for the NHL and Toronto, where during his 16 years he gained icon status. Börje struggled for a time with his health and on August 10, 2022, he announced in a statement via the Toronto Maple Leafs that he had suffered from ALS.
The people behind the Börje Foundation
Our aim is to find a cure for this terrible disease for all those affected and for their relatives to receive support and help. Healthcare needs to create a system for sufferers, regardless of age, geography or need.
To me, our foundation means a lot. We want to draw attention to ALS and contribute to research to find a cure, as well as support families going through the life crisis that ALS entails.
Being able to help in the work of supporting research and those affected by ALS feels important. I am extremely grateful and honored to be involved in this important work.
It feels important and valuable to contribute to something that makes a difference.
I feel tremendously honored and responsible to be involved in contributing to the foundation's work.
I want to support and contribute to the foundation because it feels important to make an effort.
It was painful to see how quickly Börje was broken down by the disease. More research is needed in this area and this requires an initiative such as the Börje Salming ALS Foundation.
I want to contribute to creating better conditions and finding a cure for ALS.
It's absolutely a no-brainer for me to help fight ALS.
This is Börje Salming's own foundation. Therefore, it is extremely honorable to have the opportunity to work in Börje's name to fight ALS.
