The Curse Stumbles in Sox 7th Inning as Donations Rise on http://www.reversethecurse.org
CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Coincidence? Not according to Brent Paulhus, a Lou Gehrig's disease (ALS) patient and organizer of http://www.reversethecurse.org. "It was the strangest thing, the dollars trickled in until the beginning of the 7th and then the Red Sox donations went through the roof, followed by a huge rally by the Sox. It's either the site and our good karma, or the fact that my brother left the room -- he's always been bad luck." In its first day live, Red Sox fans outbid the Yankees fans more than 50 to 1, bringing in more than $50,000 for the ALS Therapy Development Foundation, a Cambridge-based nonprofit laboratory dedicated to developing effective treatments for people living with ALS. Long-time Red Sox fans and ALS patients, Matt Dowd of Dover, MA, and Brent Paulhus of Amesbury, MA, yesterday unveiled a solution to Reversing the Curse of the Bambino, while raising money for ALS research. As Red Sox fans live with hopes for a pennant that have been dashed since 1918, Matt and Brent have lived with the frustration of ALS for years and have never lost faith that a cure is on the horizon. The two self-proclaimed "rabid Red Sox fans" understand the value of perseverance, hope, and miracles, and believe good karma plays a role in their ongoing health. "The Sox need all the good karma we can give them," said Paulhus. "Together we can help them win the pennant. The Sox can't do it without us and we can't cure ALS without the support of the fans at http://www.reversethecurse.org." About ALS TDF Founded in 1999, ALS TDF is a nonprofit biotechnology company with an in- house state-of-the-art laboratory dedicated to the discovery and development of treatments for ALS patients, regardless of revenue potential.
