Walk to Defeat ALS 2018 - OUR WORK IS NOT DONE!

Show Your Support At: -

The 2018 Walk to Defeat ALS season is over, but we are still accepting donations through December 31st. Together our three Walks raised an impressive $253,735, 70% to our goal of $360,000. Will you help us reach our goal before our December deadline? Any amount will help support our ALS families - $10 supplies a gait belt to help caregivers lift their loved one, $50 sends the child of a person with ALS to summer camp, $200 provides a person with ALS medical transportation to clinic and $500 will fund a Care Grant to one of our ALS families. Only with your help will we UNLOCK ALS and create a world without this terrible disease!
