ALS Golden West provides comprehensive and compassionate care services, free of charge, to people living with ALS and their loved ones throughout the state of Hawaii. Our evidence-based model of care is designed to help people live longer and better with ALS and to engage the ALS community in research that will accelerate scientific discovery and therapy development.

Help Us Unlock ALS In Hawaii!
Registration is OPEN for ALS Golden West's Walk to Defeat ALS events! Join us in-person for our Hawaii Walk to Defeat ALS at Kapiolani Park in Honolulu on Saturday, September 30, 2023.
Fundraising through the Walk drives bold and urgent innovation as we march together towards treatments and ultimately cures for ALS. Check out our new, attractive and user-friendly website—registration and navigation of your participant center are now easier than ever.
Important note: As this is a new system, ALL 2023 registrants and teams are regarded as “NEW” regardless of how many years you have participated in the event. You may choose a prior year username and password or brand new ones.
Proceeds from the 2023 Hawaii Walk to Defeat ALS will provide critical funding for ALS Golden West 's urgent mission priorities related to ALS care services, public policy initiatives, and cutting-edge global research. Funds raised in Hawaii are used to support our Hawaii programs and services.
“I didn’t know what ALS was before I was diagnosed. At first, it was like the whole world dropped out for me and my family. I used to be able to sing with my choir, before I lost my voice to the disease.
I have always participated in various community service activities, and I am always happiest when I give back to others. I am so grateful for my children and grandchildren.”
–Elizabeth Corpuz Sy, living with ALS since 2020
“Our mother is loving, caring, and very giving. She donates a lot of her money to family in the Philippines and the community. She has sacrificed a lot for our family.
Since forever, she used to always add “HECS4Ever,” below her signature on letters and notes, which stands for “Honestly Elizabeth Corpuz Sy Forever.” So we thought she'd like that to be our team name.
Mama is a warrior. We are Walking to raise awareness and support, so no one else has to face this disease.”
