Participant Announcements


Thank you for joining us!

The 2023 Walk to Defeat ALS Philadelphia, presented by Clemens Food Group, the parent company of Hatfield Meats, was a huge success! On behalf of all our staff, thank you. We are so grateful for all our Walk 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!

Kerry Braun and Taylor Montgomery
