Jena McEwen Headshot 2024Hello everyone! My name is Jena McEwen and I'm the Director of Development for The ALS Association Michigan. In 2017, I lost my Dad to ALS and like so many of you, every year I walk in his memory and continue our fight for an ALS cure. I am so thrilled you are joining us for the 2024 Walk to Defeat ALS Detroit! I can't wait to see you all as we raise vital funds and awareness for our ALS community. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have ANY questions or just want to chat! 

The Walk will be held at Detroit Zoo on Saturday, September 28, 2024!

2023 Walk to Defeat ALS T-Shirt


Only participants who've raised $100 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!

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.
