When the Jim “Catfish” Hunter ALS Foundation was founded in 1999 by Jimmy Hunter, he had one goal in mind – to help those fighting ALS.  After being diagnosed with ALS himself, Jimmy knew he could help make a difference, raising awareness and funds to wage a war against this horrible disease. 

His family and friends, and really his entire hometown of Hertford, NC, joined him in this fight.  Over a decade has passed, and the mission and drive held by the Foundation is as strong today as it was at the first kickoff event – and it is all made possible by your support!

Thank you for your dedication to the Foundation and in the fight against ALS!
