Community Party Events

Thank you to all of our Community Partners! You raised thousands of dollars in 2018 to support comprehensive services to people with ALS and their families, along with funding cutting edge research for treatments and a cure.

A Community Partner event is a fundraising activity that is organized and managed by a family, group or individual who is acting independent of The ALS Association St. Louis Regional Chapter. Examples of Community Partner events might include; golf outings, bike rides, auctions, raffles, walks or runs. Check out the links below for upcoming Community Partner events and to see what other groups are doing to join the fight against ALS.
