Les Turner ALS Events
Strike Out ALS 5k and 1 Mile Run, Walk & Roll
Thank you to all those who made the 2017 Strike Out ALS 5k and 1 Mile Run, Walk & Roll on Tuesday, July 11 a night to remember. With more than 600 runners and over $50,000 raised, you made a tremendous impact in the ALS community. If you were unable to attend, you can still help strike out ALS by visiting StrikeOutALS5k.org. Check out the race results and photos from the event!
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.
