Racing for ALS
The heart of MTM is family and service. Founded by David Lloyd, Sr. – run by his son Scott Lloyd for the last decade, and two years ago welcoming David Lloyd, Jr. as a member of the consulting team – MTM and the Lloyd family have always been focused on helping others. That mission has been central to our business for more than 30 years.
Racing for ALS
When David Lloyd, Jr. was diagnosed with ALS in October, 2017, we took on a new assignment - raising awareness of ALS and funds for research in hope of finding a cure. ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease affecting approximately 30,000 people in the U.S. and 450,000 worldwide. Although it is still thought of as a rare disorder, someone is diagnosed with ALS every 90 minutes and there is no effective treatment or cure. MTM has always been focused on solving problems. And so, with David’s diagnosis, we have taken on the cause of funding ALS research. It’s a serious subject, but we thought we could have a little fun along the way.
David, Jr. and Scott inherited a love of cars - particularly fast ones - from their grandfather, a lifelong mechanic. The brothers had always talked of racing cars “one day,” but in October, 2017 everything changed - one day became today. They are celebrating life and their time together while working to 'drive' funds toward a cure. Racing for ALS is on a mission to make a difference. Together with the MTM family, they are raising funds for the ALS Therapy Development Institute, a nonprofit lab whose team of scientists is focused on a single mission: to discover and develop treatments for ALS.
If you’d like to join us, you can learn more on our Facebook page or to make a financial contribution, please visit Racing for ALS. MTM will match every dollar contributed to Racing for ALS during NatCon (March 25–29, 2019) up to $10,000 - the cost of operating ALS Therapy Development Institute lab for two weeks.
