Message from your Coordinator
Hello everyone! We are so thrilled you are joining us for the Walk to Defeat ALS! Please don't hesistate to contact me if you have ANY questions!
The Walk will be held Wherever you want it to be! on Sunday, September 12, 2021!
The coronavirus pandemic forced us to hold our 2020 Walks as virtual events, but our teams rose to the challenge and hosted Mini-Walks all around the region raising over 77% of our original goal! While we would love to gather in person again for the 2021 Walk to Defeat ALS, we must consider the health and safety of all of our participants. Therefore our 2021 Walks will again be held as Mini-Walks. You can “Walk Your Way” on a route of your choosing, whether it’s at a local park, around your neighborhood, around your yard, or even around your living room. Thank you for joining us as we spread our message of hope all around the region!
For more information and ideas to make your Mini-Walk exciting, please check out this informational sheet. ALS isn't canceled and neither are we!

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!
