Message from your VP!

Hello everyone! We are so thrilled you are joining us for the Silicon Valley 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 Coyote Point Recreation Area on Saturday, October 8, 2022! This year's walk is a beautiful (and flat!) 1 mile walk along the water. Please don't hesitate to contact our team if you have ANY questions!
