About the Walk to Defeat ALS
Every year, hundreds of thousands of people across the country bring their determination, energy, and passion to the Walk to Defeat ALS® . More than just a few mile trek, it’s an opportunity to bring hope to ALS patients, to raise money for a cure, and to join together to fight for something we care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is our biggest annual event which raises funds to sustain patient care and support research for much of the following year. Approximately 165 walks are held around the country each year. Since 2000, the events have raised over $137 million toward our mission – a world without ALS. The Walk to Defeat ALS® empowers patients, friends, families, and the business community to fight back against a disease that leaves many feeling powerless.
