The Countdown is ON!

The Walk to Defeat ALS Hershey is Saturday, June 3! We can't wait to see you on at Hershey Middle School. Check-in will begin promptly at 9:00 AM and the Walk will start after a brief Opening Ceremony at 10:00 AM. Below are a few reminders to get you prepared for the Walk to Defeat ALS!
  • Parking will be available at the side lots at the Hershey Middle and Elementary Schools.
  • If you have additional cash or check donations, please give them to your Team Captain to place in donation envelopes available at registration.
  • For those bringing their friends and family to the walk that did not register online, please have them visit the registration table to officially sign up!
  • If you raised $90 by May 17, visit the t-shirt table to collect your Walk shirt.
Make sure to stop by the Tribute Tent to collect your team's NEW Walk to Defeat ALS sign! This year, teams will receive a hand-held sign that says "We are Walking for" and include your team's honoree. Due to a significant increase in the cost of the traditional "Walking for" signs that lined the route, we are offering this new alternative. It is important to our staff that the cost of the Walk to Defeat ALS remains low, so donations support our care service and research programs.

If you plan on attending the Walk to Defeat ALS at Hershey Middle School, you will be required to complete a COVID-19 waiver.The waiver outlines all the safety measures taken throughout our event. To try and avoid gatherings at our waiver table, please review and print the waiver linked below. Bring the signed copy of your waiver to the walk, and we will collect it at the Waiver Table.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out!
