Of Goal

Fundraising through the Walk drives bold and urgent innovation as we march together toward a treatment and ultimately a cure for ALS.

The Local Connection
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.

The winner of the 2019 Roanoke Walk to Defeat ALS Bingo card is Claire Swift of Wirtz, Virginia. CONGRATULATIONS! Also congratulations Roanoke on a fantastic 2019 Walk. Please call Amelia Atwill with any post-walk questions or if you are interested in being on the 2020 Walk Committee as preparations are under way.
