SPOKANE, Wash. -- The hero at the center of our Project Inspire series returns to Spokane this week.

Monday afternoon Former NFL Star and current ALS patient Steve Gleason hosts the Gleason Golf Classic. This tournament is sold out for the sixth straight year. Things tee off with a shotgun start at 1:00 p.m.

Our own Jane McCarthy will host the event's program after everyone is done golfing Monday night at the Kalispel Golf and Country Club in North Spokane County.

All of the proceeds benefit Steve's charity to improve the lives of ALS patients. This is not the only big event Steve and Jane are teaming up on this week to help ALS patients.

Gleason Fest is back for the sixth straight year on Saturday.

Grouplove will headline a full day of music in Riverfront Park. Jane will be the emcee of this huge concert all day long on Saturday.

Proceeds go to Steve's charity from this event as well. Tickets are still available for Saturday's event. You can find a link to purchase them here.
