What a great weekend!

We were so excited to be back in person celebrating the 21st annual Greater LA Walk to Defeat ALS with all of you! We hope that you are feeling rested and inspired to continue the effort to bring us many steps closer to cures for ALS.

Thank you to the hundreds of participants who attended in person, as well as to those who walked your way from home and joined our livestream watch party, made possible by our Accessibility and Inclusivity Sponsor, Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma America.

Your extraordinary dedication and fundraising efforts have raised over $361,000 towards our $445,000 goal, with more donations to come in the following weeks! Let's keep our momentum going --  we can't stop now! 

Check out our walk day photos at our Golden West Chapter Flickr account! We ask that you please share any photos you may have taken on Walk Day so we can post them as well. Photos can be emailed to Jessica Brandon at jbrandon@alsagoldenwest.org.

We would love your feedback about Walk Day so that we can improve the Walk to Defeat ALS® next year.  Please take a few moments and complete the Walk to Defeat ALS® survey.

DID YOU KNOW? Fundraising pages remain open through #GivingTuesday, throughout the holidays, and until January 31, 2023. If you didn't reach your personal or team goal, there's still time to get there. The more we raise, the more we can do to urgently advance important ALS research, advocacy, and care.

The walk event may be over, but we are still here for you. We look forward to walking with you again next year!  It is only together that we will defeat ALS.

Your Greater LA Walk team

SoCal CO TeamMessage from your Community Outreach Team

Hello everyone! We are so thrilled you are joining us for the Greater LA Walk to Defeat ALS as we go back to hosting in person events! Thank you for your leadership and partnership these past couple of years as we worked through the pandemic. For those of you who are not ready to join us in person, rest assured that you will be able to continue to Walk Your Way from wherever you call home with our support.

ALS is unrelenting as is our fight to defeat it. The Walk to Defeat ALS is much more than a one-day community gathering. It is a movement, a rally call, and a year-long effort to generate significant and necessary revenue in support of our Chapter’s wraparound model of care that helps people live longer and better with ALS, while fueling global ALS research and important public policy initiatives to benefit the ALS Community.

The Walk will be held at Exposition Park on Sunday, November 6, 2022! It's the end of Daylight Savings time so make sure to set your clock ahead by one hour the night before! Please don't hesitate to contact our team if you have ANY questions!
