ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Progress

Inspired by ALS Heroes (persons living with ALS) and their meet-any-challenge spirit, The ALS Association Indiana Chapter, formed the Kent Dickerson Ring of Honor.  An avenue for philanthropists to honor their loved ones each year with a charitable donation of $5,000 or more. An exclusive membership society, the Kent Dickerson Ring of Honor was established in 2019.  
The Ring of Honor's namesake is Kent Dickerson, an ALS Hero.  Kent is passionate about giving back.  In his own words Kent says, " I want to leave a legacy that will help others deal with this dreaded disease we call ALS.  There are so many families struggling with the everyday needs that ALS brings.  We need to help those people."  
Kent and The ALS Association Indiana Chapter invite you to join us to support the work that fundraising events alone do not cover - work that can benefit every patient living with ALS in Indiana and the entire ALS community for years to come.



Kent Dickerson was diagnosed with ALS in 2013.  Since his diagnosis he has maintained a fighting spirit. With his faith and his family by his side, he has personally worked to raise awareness about ALS and for people living with this disease.  Kent is married to Sandy, he is a father, grandfather and compassionate friend.
