“The ALS Association and Florida Chapter are doing a tremendous job and we’re honored to support their massive research efforts. For all of those fighting this battle, we are committed to supporting research and advancement of ALS treatments. I lost my father to ALS in 2012. He was a fighter every step of the way. I’ll always admire his gift of giving back, an important trait he instilled in me,” says Stephen Shanton, president and CEO of Venture Construction Group of Florida, founder of the Shanton ALS Foundation.
