The Walk to Defeat ALS® is an outlet for communities across the nation to demonstrate their concern for and the urgent need to find the cure for ALS while providing the best care for those who are currently battling the disease.
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.
What began more than 15 years ago as a grassroots effort to increase awareness has now turned into a National Signature Event that the entire ALS community rallies behind, growing the number of teams and participants each year.
Over 150,000 ALS supporters nationwide participated in local Walks in 2017. It was incredible to feel your support, as Walks across the country broke fundraising and attendance records, and enthusiasm was off the charts!
Help us keep the momentum going in 2018!
