The Cause:

Proceeds from all of Cheese Wheel, Inc.'s events donated the the following benefactors. Below you will find addtional information regarding what they do.

 

ALS Association (aka Lou Gehrig's Disease):

The ALS Association symbolizes the hopes of people everywhere that Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis will one day be a disease of the past – relegated to historical status, studied in medical textbooks, conquered by the dedication of thousands who have worked ceaselessly to understand and eradicate this perplexing killer.

Until that day comes, The ALS Association relentlessly pursues its mission to help people living with ALS and to leave no stone unturned in search for the cure of the progressive neurodegenerative disease that took the life and name of Baseball Legend Lou Gehrig.

As the only not-for-profit voluntary health agency dedicated solely to the fight against ALS, we direct the largest privately-funded research enterprise engaged to uncover the mystery of a disease that affects as many as 30,000 annually. With more than 5,600 people diagnosed each year – an average of 15 new cases each day – our mission is urgent. The search for answers knows no bounds.

The ALS Association’s far-reaching efforts extend to Capitol Hill and some of the world’s finest research laboratories. Over the last decade, we have committed close to $40 million to ALS research. We’ve brought the ALS community the historic Medicare waiver of the 24-month waiting period and a 100% increase in funding since our advocacy campaign began.

BDHS Scholarship Program:
Cheese Wheel Achievement Scholarship

The Cheese Wheel Achievement Scholarship is presented to two graduating seniors. These two $500 scholarships will go to students showing leadership skills, scholastic ability, and community service. Preference will be to a student entering the healthcare or automotive fields.

BD SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE PHILOSOPHY:

Scholarships are given to reward and encourage students. To a student graduating from high school, there are many sources of scholarships available: industries and foundations, universities and technical schools, federal grants, military service, and local scholarships. Established to administer these local monetary and honorary awards, the scholarship committee is composed of the principal, associate principals, three school counselors, community members, retired high school teachers, and current high school staff members.

One of the major purposes of the Scholarship Committee is to award local scholarships through a fair process to as many different individuals as possible, adjusting our eligible list according to Foundation recipients. The Scholarship Committee awards only one scholarship per individual; however, individuals may receive additional scholarships from agencies outside the selection process of the Beaver Dam High School Scholarship Committee.
