Les Turner ALS Events

Special Events

Just one day can make a difference

Our events are some of the easiest ways to get involved with the fight against ALS — when even small gestures can have huge impact. Every year, the Foundation hosts five signature events: the Hope Through Caring GalaTag Days, the Strike Out ALS 5k, the Open Water Swim for ALS and the ALS Walk For Life. Foundation events are some of the easiest ways to get involved in the fight against ALS.  Here, you’ll connect with other members of the Les Turner ALS community while helping raise funds to support research, patient services and education.

Show your support. Raise awareness. Fight ALS.

Throughout the year, we also have a variety of events hosted by families and other members of our community known as Family and Community Events and Team Race for ALS is for athletes who want to fundraise while chasing a new personal best.

For more information on any of our events, please contact our events team at 847 679 3311 or events@lesturnerals.org.
