Our Mission

The Team Drea Foundation supports bold, innovative research to find a cure or effective treatment for ALS.

We see raising awareness about this devastating disease as an opportunity to inspire people to live bravely, love joyfully, and appreciate the gift of life.

Our Founder

Andrea Lytle Peet was diagnosed with ALS in 2014 at the age of 33. In eight months, she went from completing a 70.3-mile half Ironman triathlon to walking with a cane.

Remarkably, she has continued to participate in races on her recumbent trike. In May 2022, She became the first person with ALS to do a marathon in all 50 states!

About ALS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (aka ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease) is a progressive neurological disease that affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. When motor neurons that connect nerves and muscles die, people lose the ability to initiate and control muscle movement. Without stimulation, muscles become weak and atrophy. Most people with ALS become totally paralyzed as they lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, swallow, and breathe.

Every 90 minutes, someone with ALS dies and another person is diagnosed.

The average age of diagnosis is 55; however, cases of ALS also appear in people in their 20s and 30s.

Military veterans are twice as likely to develop ALS as the general population. Athletes also seem to be more susceptible. No one is sure why.

The average life expectancy of a person with ALS is 2-5 years. 20% live 5 years or more; 10% percent live more than 10 years.

There is no effective treatment for ALS. The only approved drugs for ALS only slow down the decline by a few months.

Unbox with us! Huge thanks to the amazing crew at rabbit for sending us such awesome gear. They came to our screening at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which was so fun because I have always loved training in (and let’s be honest LIVING in) their super soft jogarounds after Jillaine Baker and Jodi Klyn introduced us. Let’s just say they get me 😉 and now I can twin with DP and @flysquirrelfilms at Go On, Be Brave events! Go to runinrabbit.com to grab your own gear! 💚💚💚 ... See MoreSee Less

We are thrilled to announce the world premiere of our documentary film, "Go On, Be Brave," at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on February 15, 2023!

"I realized that I could be depressed or I could live my life. The time would pass either way."

Thank you @GuyKawasaki and the Remarkable People podcast for sharing my story of HOPE and gratitude! A good side dish to pair the true meaning of Thanksgiving 🦃
