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.


Hello everyone,

*** Due to the impact of COVID-19, we have postponed our Down East Walk to Defeat ALS. Please check back here often for more information. We will update this site with our new date as soon as we have it.

Keep your fundraising efforts going - people living with ALS need our support now more than ever! Please don't hesistate to contact me to learn more about making the most of virtual and social media fundraising options, and if you have any questions! ***

Thank you so much for being amazing ALS advocates, and for your patience and understanding in this uncertain time. We will do amazing things this year with your support!

Together for a cure,

Leah Strom
