Message from your Coordinator
Hello everyone! We are so thrilled you are joining us for the Walk to Defeat ALS! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
The Walk will be held at Promenade Park on Sunday, October 2, 2022!
The coronavirus pandemic forced us to hold our Walk events virtually the last two years, but we're excited to announce that we're moving forward with plans for hosting in-person events this year! We can't wait to see you again!
While our staff would love to see everyone return, we understand that some of you prefer the “Walk Your Way” option on a route of your choosing. This can be at a local park, around your neighborhood, around your yard, or even around your living room. We will also plan virtual components for those teams. Thank you for joining us as we spread our message of hope all around the region!
Below are some helpful links and tips to get you started!

How to get a 2022 WALK TO DEFEAT ALS T-SHIRT
Remember - official Walk to Defeat ALS T-shirts are given to registered Walk participants who've raised $90 or more. This benefit is awarded to registrants who raised funds, not to teams or donors. If you have a donor who would like a shirt, we recommend asking them to register as a member of your team and make a self donation.
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.
Statistically speaking, someone around the world is diagnosed with ALS every 90 minutes, and every 90 minutes someone loses their battle with ALS. Recognizing the importance of "every 90 minutes," the T-shirt minimum is $90. It is our hope that this minimum will reinforce this critical statistic and help you develop a better understanding of the disease.
