Participant Announcements

Thank you for joining us!

The 2023 Walk to Defeat ALS in Lehigh Valley was a huge success! On behalf of everyone at the Greater Philadelphia Chapter, thank you. We are so grateful for all our Walk to Defeat ALS donors, participants, sponsors, and volunteers. Funds from the Walk support local patient service programs, including access to multidisciplinary clinics, equipment loan programs, assistive technology, and more to ease the burden of ALS.

Funds from the Walk also support cutting-edge research programs around the world. Through these research projects, scientists are working to slow the progression of ALS and search for a cure - to create a world without ALS.

Your donations and fundraising efforts for the Walk to Defeat ALS make our work possible! Fundraising for the Walk will close at the end of the year, so if you wish to make any additional donations to support our mission - there is still time.

Thank you!

Message from your Coordinator

Hello everyone! 

We are so thrilled you are joining us for the Walk to Defeat ALS at Cedar Crest College on Saturday, October 14, 2023! The Walk to Defeat ALS is a one-day celebration to honor those with ALS and remember those we have lost to the disease.

Throughout the day, teams can collect their Unlock ALS keys and fill out the paper key to hang on the tribute tent. Hear your team name announced and take photos with your friends and family. Speak with other members of the Walk to learn about their journey and grow our community of hope.

By participating in the Walk to Defeat ALS, you can make a difference in the lives of people with ALS and help fund groundbreaking research for a cure.

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.
