2018 One Dollar Difference Florida Chapter

Walk the Beach

Please join us April 15, 2018, on Pensacola Beach for the first ever WALK THE BEACH 2018 in memory of Jim "Pop" Elbert, who lost a fierce battle with ALS in February.     
Here are the details for our event.

We will start in front of Flounders Restraunt at 9:30. Same day registration will start at 8:30. Everyone who gives the minimum donation of 25 dollars will receive a free "Walk the Beach" T-shirt and a ticket to attend the VIP Walker's Celebration after the walk at Flounders from 10:30 to Noon. Light refreshments are provided. There will be a cash bar.

The walk will go from the former Island Style shop down to the Gowens park then return. The path will be showcasing the many places that my Father held dear to his heart as well as the multiple spots that my Dad had businesses, such as Discount Beachwear, Island Video, The "Pink Store"
Toucan's T-shirt Shop. The turn around is his own street, Panferio, where we spent so many wonderful times as a family.

I am so excited to be putting this fundraiser on. The money that we raise will go towards a mission that we can all get behind - a world without ALS.
There is currently NO cure, and that is just unacceptable for a disease with a life expectancy of 2-5 years.

Funds raised will go towards:
  • Continuing the 150+ research projects looking into the causes of ALS in hopes of developing better treatments
  • Supporting patient services clinics, support groups, equipment lending, and transportation
  • Leading the way in helping to ensure the ALS community has proper access to care


We need to do everything we can to find a treatment and a cure. Together, let's make a difference - one dollar at a time!
