Message from your Coordinator
Hi, everyone! I want to provide an important update for the Seaside Walk this Saturday, May 7th.
After much discussion and deliberation, The ALS Association Greater Philadelphia Chapter decided to no longer host the Seaside Walk to Defeat ALS at the Seaside Heights Boardwalk on Saturday, May 7th.
The National Weather Service is calling for gale force winds on Saturday. Strong winds could cause dangerous conditions throughout the morning, which is likely to impact driving conditions and the area around the Walk.
We wish we could be together on Saturday, but the safety of our participants, volunteers, and staff are our top priority.
Instead, we are encouraging you to host your own mini-Walk at a later date. We are in the process of sending out Walk Boxes to each team captain, so teams can still celebrate.
Although we will not gather at the Seaside Heights Boardwalk on Saturday, we want to remind you that we Walk for the same purpose: to raise vital funds for advocacy, patient care, and research.
Thank you for your continued support, and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

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!
For participants that plan to join us at the boardwalk, you must fundraise $90 by April 20th to receive your t-shirt on Walk Day. After Walk Day, our staff will mail out t-shirts to participants who raised $90 after the deadline or hosted their own mini-Walk.
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!
