Important Event Update!
Fundraising through the Walk drives bold and urgent innovation as we march together toward a treatment and ultimately a cure for ALS.
The Local Connection
Your participation in the Walk to Defeat ALS has a direct impact on people living with ALS and their families at the local level. Through education, support groups, access to care and advocacy, we are working to defeat ALS and provide hope to people living with ALS and their families.
This year, there will be two options for participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS: Walk Your Way or the Tribute Walk.
Walk Your Way is the virtual Walk solution to still raise awareness and funds for our ALS community without gathering in person.
Teams utilizing Walk Your Way are encouraged to create your own Walk Day activities and participate by submitting your pictures and/or videos, where you’re walking, why you’re walking, how you’re celebrating, etc. Teams can Walk Your Way on the actual Walk Day, or any time before or after. We will live stream opening ceremonies virtually Saturday, October 9th at 10 a.m.
The Tribute Walk is our NEW way for teams to still go out and have a walking route. Instead of a one-day event, we will be placing professionally designed and printed tribute signs along an accessible walking route. These tribute signs will include messages of honor, love, support, and other dedications for those throughout our ALS community. Teams who wish to participate in the Tribute Walk will be able to do so any time while the route is set up. Participants are expected to abide by all CDC, state, local, and venue guidelines. Stay tuned for more details as we finalize location and the duration.
