The Walks for ALS (http://walk4als.ca) are the ALS Society’s signature fundraising event, which brings together family and friends in support of ALS. From a modest beginning in 2001 with eight walks across the country, the WALK for ALS has grown to more than 94 Walks occurring each year.
Donations made to the WALK for ALS help in two very critical ways;
By supporting the provincial ALS societies in their direct services for people with ALS and their families, such as equipment assistance, referrals to local health care and community services, educational information, home visits and co-ordination of peer support groups.
By supporting ALS Canada and its ability to fund breakthrough research into the causes, treatments and, ultimately, a cure for ALS.
