The Answer ALS research initiative, born out of the efforts of Steve and Team Gleason, has launched “A Game-Changing Moment” campaign in partnership with the NFL. The pro-bono campaign features epic “game-changing” moments throughout NFL history including Dwight Clark’s “The Catch,” Roger Staubach’s “The Hail Mary,” and Steve Gleason’s “The Rebirth.” The campaign aims to connect with NFL fans by reminding them of emotion-filled plays and asking them to help give ALS, a disease that has no treatment or a cure, its own game-changing moment.

Steve Gleason will always be remembered for his blocked punt on the night the New Orleans Superdome reopened for the first time after Hurricane Katrina.

Steve is determined to inspire others by continuing to pursue life adventures despite his diagnosis, and has challenged the worlds of technology and science to identify their most promising developments toward new treatments and a cure.
