808 ALS Vets


Thank you for helping us reach our fund raising goal! Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.

Why We Walk

For the Fight... Living with ALS is truly a struggle. Your support of our walk and advocacy in our community keeps the fighting spirit alive and gives hope to those people and families living with ALS and ensures they are not forgotten.

For Awareness... In order to fight the fight, we need to spread awareness across a wide spectrum of audiences to include: our community; our health care providers; our health insurance companies; and our city, State, and federal government officials.

For Care Services... For many families living in Hawaii that have a family member with ALS, access to the right care services can be very challenging and very expensive. Through your support, we hope to expand care services for those living with ALS in Hawaii.  

Why We Need Your Help

Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, ALS is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.

Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries. This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. 

The Military Connection

Scientists have yet to find a cause for why America's military veterans are approximately twice as likely to develop ALS than other segments of our population. Study after study continues to demonstrate this to be true: If you serve in the military, regardless of the branch of service, regardless of whether you served during a time of peace or a time of war, you are at a greater risk of dying from ALS than if you had not served in the military.

Each and every walker brings us one step closer to a cure. Help us make a difference and donate or join our walk today!
