Message from your Coordinator
Hello everyone! We are excited to announce that the Northwest Arkansas Walk to Defeat ALS will be virtual via Facebook Live!
To prioritize the safety of all involved, this year we are giving every participant the tools they need to host their own "ALS Walk Your Way" experience that fit your team's needs, health directives, and abilities.
On September 19th, walk together with us across Arkansas by organizing your "Walk Your Way" in your neighborhood/park, home/backyard or by doing a car parade. You can be as creative as you wish! The most important thing is that you continue to spread awareness about ALS! Be sure to tag us in your fun @ALSArkansas. Don't forget to use the following hashtags: #ALSInThisTogether, #ALSWalkYourWay, #ThanksHometownHeroes and #ALSArkansas. You can even host a pre- or post- Walk gathering (or both); take lots of photos and make lots of new memories that will last a lifetime!
Our Walk Theme this year is Hometown Heroes - whether it's a hero fighting ALS or their caregiver, our local emergency responders, our doctors, nurses and healthcare staff, our grocery clerks or our farmers - in times like these we want to honor all of you! Thank you for all you do in our communities and in support of our mission to find a cure for ALS! You are truly our HEROES!

Fundraising tools at your fingertips
We've Gone Mobile!
Your fundraising has gone mobile thanks to the Walk to Defeat ALS mobile & tablet app. Now you can fundraise on the go by sending emails, monitoring your fundraising progress and updating your page.
Only participants who've raised $90 will get a t-shirt. This benefit is awarded to individuals, not teams or donors, so make sure the donations to your personal fundraising record add up!
In addition to working toward one for yourself, you should spread the word to encourage your friends, family, and coworkers to earn their very own shirt.
Make sure you become of a fan of our Chapter on Facebook to receive information about fundraising contests, shout outs to outstanding teams and walkers, and important Walk Day details!
