Stay tuned for details about the 2018 Strike Out ALS 5k and 1 Mile Run, Walk & Roll!

Since 2010, the Strike Out ALS 5k has attracted thousands in the Chicagoland area to this one of a kind race at Guaranteed Rate Field. The event provides a truly unique Chicago experience by giving participants the opportunity to run, walk or roll on the warning track. After crossing the finish line, we celebrate our success at an after-party hosted at the Chi-Sox Bar & Grill.

The money we raise together goes toward helping people currently living with ALS (PALS) and their families through support given by the Foundation’s Home and Community Team and its various grant programs. It also supports the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine where PALS are seen by a multidisciplinary clinical staff at the Lois Insolia ALS Clinic, ensuring no part of their disease goes unseen and untreated. The Center also supports three separate ALS research laboratories, each working to provide hope of a future without ALS.
