The Walk to Defeat ALS turns 20 this year!
2020 marks a very special year for The ALS Association as we commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Walk to Defeat ALS. Over the past two decades, more than 100,000 teams have united across the nation to make a stand in the fight against ALS. We want to say THANK YOU to everyone (past, present, and future) from the Greater Sacramento Chapter who has walked in honor, in memory, or in support of someone diagnosed with ALS. Thank you for being a foot soldier in the fight against ALS and for your critical contribution to creating a world without ALS.
To us, the Walk signifies help, hope, and family. This year, we will honor the 20th anniversary by reuniting our Walk team families, past and present, to join forces at Sutter Health Park on Saturday, October 3rd. Together, we will ensure that everyone impacted by ALS feels the strength of our community behind them. We believe that, within the next 20 years, we will have realized our 20/20 vision of a world without ALS. With your help, we know it's possible.
Please register, join a team, or donate here and help us celebrate 20 years of uniting the ALS community.
