Walk to Defeat ALS®

Walk to Defeat ALS® draws people of all ages and athletic abilities together to honor the courageous souls who are affected by ALS, to remember those who have passed, and to show support for the cause. When you Walk to Defeat ALS©, you help expand the programs and services that benefit people living with the disease across the nation and in your community.

I Will Attend


The U.S. government is the single largest funding source of ALS research and care, and ALS advocates play a critical role in securing federal support and concern for the cause. Personal stories and passionate testimonials show Congress why they must do more to find the cure for ALS. We need your help.

I Will Advocate


Donate your time to help those in need. Volunteers are the driving force behind The ALS Association. Local chapters and the National Office depend on our community to help achieve a world without ALS. To learn how you can help in your area, contact your local chapter.
