In 2000, Couch's friends and family established this fund to help support research into ALS and to provide for the financial needs of others afflicted with the disease. Every year, the Dave Couch Golf Tournament is held to raise proceeds for ALS research and to build the funds of the David A. Couch ALS/Neuromuscular Disease Fund. Since the fund's establishment, grants have been awarded to fund medical research and to support equipment loan closets.
Through this fund, Dave's memory lives on and important support is made possible. It is the hope of the Couch Family that medical research will find a cure for this horrible disease.
