At 21, Stephen Hawking was diagnosed with ALS.
January 8 marks what would have been his 79th birthday. as a gift in his honor, AnswerALS released free access to the largest ALS dataset in history – and hopes the year ‘21 will see a breakthrough in his honor, too.
GALE was tasked with coming up with a campaign, media strategy and plan to launch this innovative portal. We created an emotional video launched on Stephen Hawking's birthday along with programmatic and digital display as well as some influencer marketing. The goal is create awareness and drive portal sign-ups within the ALS research and science community.
