About the Move to Cure ALS

The Move to Cure ALS is the signature fundraising event for the ALS Society of British Columbia (ALS BC). The fun, family-friendly events unite people to celebrate hope for a future without ALS, honour those we have loved and lost, and support the people and their families living with the disease by "Moving" together towards a cure for ALS, whether walking, running, rolling, supporting or being present in person or virtually.

All funds raised stay in BC and the Yukon to support people living with ALS, patient care and ALS research through PROJECT HOPE. Our goal is to end ALS through a world-class ALS Centre at The University of British Columbia. 100% of net proceeds to the ALS Society of British Columbia will remain in BC to support patient services programs (60%) and research (40%) through PROJECT HOPE. We’re all in this together, because ALS doesn’t stop, and neither will we.
