The Billy Lake Memorial Research Fund was created as a tribute to BillyLake, a Havertown resident, who died from ALS in 1992. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is a progressive, usually fatal muscular disease, frequently referred to as 'Lou Gehrig's disease' because the famous Yankee first baseman, Lou Gehrig (1903-1941) suffered from it.

The primary objectives for the Billy Lake Memorial Research Fund are as follows:

  • Provide funding to support an eventual cure for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).


  • Fund community and national programs directed towards ALS Research.


  • Provide educational scholarships in the name of the Billy Lake Memorial Research Fund.
