Carol Moeller ALS Research Endowment

Our goal is to establish an endowment* that will live on forever at The Robert Packard Center at Johns Hopkins

 to help fund ALS research in honor of Carol Moeller. 

Carol Moeller was a proud wife, mother and grandmother who was an avid runner, dental hygienist and active member of her temple and her community. Carol ran every morning for over 30 years and completed one marathon, multiple half-marathons and numerous 10k races. Although she maintained an extremely healthy lifestyle, in January of 2016, Carol noticed numbness in her face. In March of 2016 she was diagnosed with Bulbar Palsy, an aggressive form of ALS. In April of 2016, Carol lost the ability to speak and eat. She postponed a feeding tube surgery so that in May of 2016, Carol could run her last 10k race with her family by her side. 

In October of 2016, eight months after being diagnosed, she passed away, with her family by her side.

Our family, with the support of the Charash Foundation led by Neil and Heather Harris and their family, has a goal of honoring Carol Moeller by funding ALS research for many years to come. We are determined to prevent others from experiencing what Carol did. We count on your contributions to make this dream become a reality. We are thankful for your consideration in helping us achieve this goal. 

It means the world to us!


*To establish this endowment in Carol Moeller's name, we must raise $100,000 in five years. If we do not reach the endowment goal, the funds raised will be used for ALS research.

The Robert Packard Center for ALS Research at Johns Hopkins operates under the tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The EIN number of the School of Medicine is 52-0595110.
