Ulla-Carin Lindquist’s Foundation for ALS-Research

Ulla-Carin Lindquist Foundation for ALS-Research is a Swedish non-profit organization that allocates approximately SEK 4 million to leading ALS-research on an annual basis under the supervision of the Swedish Fundraising Control. We comprise of the Board of Directors, registry, volunteer ambassadors and a scientific advisory board.

Ulla-Carin Lindquist was diagnosed with the deadly disease ALS in 2003. As a news anchor and a familiar face for most Swedes, she decided to put ALS in the spotlight by writing the book “Rowing without Oars” and producing the documentary “My fight against time”. Rowing without oars was translated to several languages and My fight against time was Sweden’s most viewed television documentary.

After her passing, a foundation was formed in 2005 by family, friends and the publishing house Nordstedts using proceeds from the book. The foundation is supervised by the Swedish Fundraising Control, which requires that at least 75% of revenue be donated to the cause, and continues to be run primarily by friends and family.
