Walk to Defeat ALS
October 14, 2017
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. This year we had the largest goal in history- $310,500! Thanks to YOU we crushed that goal and are currently at $344,000! We are still accepting donations for the Walk to Defeat ALS through December, so you can still support your team!To Donate
