The Israeli Office of the Prime Minister recently announced it would be awarding Prize4Life CEO and co-founder Avi Kremer with the "Prime Minister's Prize for Initiatives and Innovations Not for Profit."
The Prizes are designed to encourage and promote innovative and creative thinking in business ventures that have the potential to inspire significant changes in science, technology and society. "I am flattered and humbled to receive this prize," said Avi Kremer, "The decision of the distinguished national committee is a testament to the innovation and impact of the Prize4Life model—an efficient and results-oriented model that has already proven its worth in helping to advance ALS research. This prize belongs to the thousands of people who have supported Prize4Life since its founding as much as it belongs to me."
