History of The Crystal Ball

In the past ten years, the Crystal Ball fundraisers have raised over $1,750,000 which has gone 100% to our mission. Our primary mission is that of funding research to help find a cure for the devastating, muscle wasting diseases of MD and ALS. Our secondary mission includes funding projects to improve the quality of life for ALL people with disabilities such as service dogs, adult recreation programs, etc. Our Crystal Ball organization is composed entirely of local volunteers and our overhead is minimal. As a result, supporters of the Crystal Ball can feel confident that they are able to make a major difference in the lives of children and adults struggling with disabilities and the neuromuscular diseases of Muscular Dystrophy and ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease).
