2018 Walk to Defeat ALS

October 6th, 2018
Raley Field
West Sacramento, CA

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association, Greater Sacramento Chapter’s biggest annual event, which raises funds to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year. Last year we had the largest goal in history- $310,500! Thanks to YOU we crushed that goal and raised $346,000! 

In 2018 the bar has been raised again! Our goal is $357,000 in order to meet the increasing needs of local families battling ALS. 

Call Trish Ellis at 916-979-9265 or email with questions.
