Come join the fun and help make a difference!

Walk to Defeat ALS 2017

In 2017 we are hosting 3 Walk to Defeat ALS events in Grand Rapids, Detroit and Portage Michigan. These events are more than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about.

If you have any questions about the Michigan Chapter's Walk to Defeat ALS events, please contact Jeanne Pingle at 248.680.6540 or jean@alsa-michigan.org.
