Les Turner ALS Walk For Life

Walk4ALS_Logo The Les Turner ALS Walk For Life is one of the world’s largest ALS gatherings — with thousands of participants each year. The Walk has raised more than $10 million to support patient care — and cutting edge research at Northwestern Medicine — for the vast majority of the Chicagoland ALS population. The hope, courage and community on display from our teams are truly inspiring  — and incredibly impactful in the ALS community.
