How we work

Partnering with their local ALS Associations, Rugby clubs across America are working to raise awareness and funding for both ALS research and their clubs.  Fundraising has always been a part of sports organizations but we are working to bring more than sports entertainment to the community.  Rugby is a unique community of special individuals that play and live with passion, heart and drive.  We are bringing our fighting spirit to the table, in the battle against ALS.  Individual clubs across America have partnered to donate proceeds from there fund raising events to help SMASH ALS!

Rugby Smash ALS Challenge

Special Video Content coming soon.


The RugbySmashALS Challenge is how Rugby players step up to the plate in the fight against ALS.  Join us in raising awareness and funds for the National and your local ALS chapters.


How do I get involved?  Much like the Ice Bucket challenge, film yourself doing the challenge, post it to social media, throw out some challenges and raise awareness and funds.


If you can't take/give a tackle, have a little fun and be creative.  Most of all, have FUN!
