Message from your VP!
Hello everyone! We are so thrilled you are joining us for the East Bay 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 Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline on Saturday, October 15, 2022! This year's walk will be a flat 1 mile loop around Miller/Knox park. Please don't hesitate to contact our team if you have ANY questions!

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.
Participants who raise $100 or more will receive this year's official event t-shirt! This benefit is awarded to individuals, not teams or donors, so make sure the donations to your personal fundraising record add up!
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!
