ALGS Warrior T-shirts Available
To celebrate Rare Disease day, we designed an ALGS Warrior t-shirt. The shirt helps raise awareness for our favorite rare disease (ALGS), and it supports the overall Rare Disease Day event. You can purchase your ALGS Warrior t-shirt from our ALGS Gear page. We are encouraging everyone to take a selfie wearing the ALGS Warrior t-shirt and post it to their favorite social media site. Don't forget to use the hashtags #rarediseaseday and #algswarrior. Have fun!
