Les Turner ALS Events
May is ALS Awareness Month — and part of that awareness is achieved through the Les Turner ALS Foundation Tag Days drives. During the month of May, thousands of volunteers take to the streets — standing at intersections, shopping malls and train stations in yellow vests to collect donations from passersby and raise awareness. Since 1997, Tag Days drives have raised nearly $1.7 million to support the Les Turner ALS Foundation! The genius of Tag Days is that it requires little more than a yellow vest, a can for donations and two hours or more from a willing volunteer. It may not seem like much, but it all adds up making a big difference!
2016 Tag Days
This year, 13 drives scattered across Chicagoland brought in over $39,000. Thank you to our captains, volunteers and communities that helped support another successful year of Tag Days drives!

For every dollar donated, 88 cents is directly used to fund research, patient services and educational programs.
