Chapter Events Update in Reponse to COVID-19

Based on the CDC’s latest recommendations, we have modified our spring event schedule. As we continue to monitor the everchanging status of COVID-19, we will provide updates regarding our events via email and on our social media channels.

ALS doesn't stop during this crisis, so we are still actively fundraising for all events to support the programs and services of the Chapter. Especially during times like these, we want to ensure we have the resources in place to meet the needs of the ALS community. You can help by fundraising or contributing to any of these events, or by making a general donation to our mission.
