In 2002, the ALS Therapy Alliance invited CVS/pharmacy to join the fight against ALS by asking its customers to donate to the cause at the checkout counters. Because of this partnership, the Researching a Cure fundraising campaign was born.

Twelve years later, that partnership is still thriving under a new call to action known as Breakthrough ALS, and CVS/pharmacy is still an integral part of the annual ALS fundraising campaign.

As of 2012, this effort has raised more than $30 million. 100% of all money raised benefits the ALS Therapy Alliance.

This annual fundraiser takes place at CVS/pharmacy stores throughout the U.S. and online each year for the month of June.
