About the RUN to Defeat ALS

Run Website Header - Event Info

The Golden West Chapter's Team Challenge ALS is excited to present the first ever Run to Defeat ALS, from wherever you are! Are you interested in participating in a local 5k? 10k? Fun run? Trail run? Marathon? And fundraise for the ALS community at the same time? Well, you're in luck because now you can! You pick the event, then register here, and we'll set you up with a personal fundraising page and staff support along the way to help you cross that finish line and help create a world without ALS.
