Remembering Those We’ve Lost

In remembrance of our loved ones lost to ALS, we’re hosting a Celebration of Life on Saturday, July 18 at 11am via Facebook Live.

This will be a moving, 15-minute online service honoring those we have lost to ALS and includes readings from our CEO, Andrea Pauls Backman, and Support Group Facilitator Anne Lidsky, PhD, who will lead a candle lighting ceremony, and music from Cantor Adam Kahan.

A Late-Bird Special To Strike Out ALS

You have just 3 days left to race towards a cure at our Virtual Strike Out ALS 5k and 1 Mile Run, Walk & Roll. For all you stragglers out there, we’re offering a $5 late-bird special!

Use the code “SUMMERSWEAT” and score $5 OFF before registration closes on Thursday, July 16 at 12pm CST.

Our Les Turner ALS family is counting on you to help make this year’s event a success, no matter how or where you participate. It’s not too late to lace up and support people and families living with ALS across Chicagoland>>

 


Walk for Hope, Walk for Help and Walk for Life

We always say our ALS Walk for Life is like one big family reunion. And while we can’t all gather at Soldier Field this year, you can use your passion and dedication to help create a world free of ALS!

Our virtual format gives you the opportunity to create a team and fundraise in honor or memory of a loved one with ALS.

We’ll all come together for a celebration on Facebook Live, Saturday, September 26 at 11am! Walk with us>>
