Walk Your Way

Whether you join us for a Walk event or Walk on your own - we are united on Walk Day. The strength of ALS support shines through on Walk Day as we come together to honor those affected by ALS and raise funds to advance research, care, and advocacy for the ALS community. Wherever you are and whatever your connection, we will all rally on Walk Day!

Do I have to attend a Walk to participate?

You are encouraged to Walk Your Way in 2023! Participate in whatever way works best for you. Our Walk events will be a familiar staple for some, others may prefer a team gathering on their own. What’s important is that we are committed to supporting our loved ones with ALS and finding a cause and cure for this disease. Don’t forget to spread the word and make memories along the way!
