Walk to Defeat ALS

Walk in Honor. Walk in Memory. Walk in Support.

Join a Walk to Defeat ALS event near you! It's the largest annual gathering of the ALS community, raising funds and awareness that power our Chapter’s free ALS care services and the search for effective treatments and cures to defeat ALS.

This family-friendly event occurs annually in 8 different communities served by the Golden West Chapter throughout California and the entire state of Hawaii. The Walk to Defeat ALS includes wheelchair accessible walk routes, an ALS Resource Fair, entertainment, and a Festival Zone with activities for all ages. Your support provides critical funding for essential care services, important public policy initiatives, and cutting-edge research.

Event registration will be opening soon, but in the meantime you can mark your calendar for the Walk event closest to you and sign up to pre-register for one or more Walks today!

Don't see a Walk in your local community listed below? Don't worry, more 2023 event dates coming soon! Thank you for your patience as we finalize details. We look forward to seeing you this year! For all inquiries, please contact walk@alsagoldenwest.org.
