Race Charity:

The Spastic Paraplegia Foundation (SPF) is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization founded in 2000 and the beneficiary of the Magnificent Mile Races. Its primary mission is to find a cure for two upper motor neuron disorders -PLS and HSP-- and to raise awareness of their devastating effects. Some 92% of its funds go to this mission. Since its inception, the Foundation has awarded more than $2 million in research grants.

Motor neuron disease is a class of progressive neurological disorders that includes amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease), primary lateral sclerosis (PLS), and hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP).

In these diseases, the motor neurons that control voluntary movement break down and die, which causes problems with walking, speech, swallowing, arm and hand movement and, in some cases, breathing. The cause of these disorders is unknown, and in 90% of cases there is no family history. Currently, there is no cure and treatment is symptomatic.
