The Team Gleason Foundation is one of the leading foundations for raising awareness for ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), something that former New Orleans Saints player Steve Gleason was diagnosed with, in 2011. Since then, him, his family, his team with the foundation, and many volunteers have made incredible advances in being able to equip people who have the diagnosis with the tools to live their lives to the fullest.

Blair Casey is the Assistant Executive Director with Team Gleason and also a long time friend of Steve and his wife Michelle. He joined me on The Word With G Friday to detail how he got involved, how you can get involved, events coming up, and much more. Please, take a listen to this incredible conversation with one of the best people I've had the fortune of chatting with and help spread awareness for ALS.
