We want to extend our heartfelt thanks for joining us on the 22nd annual Les Turner ALS Walk for Life. Your participation shone as bright as the sun on that perfect autumn day, illuminating the remarkable passion and commitment of our community, with over $575,000 (and counting) raised to support those affected by ALS and fund critical research toward living in a world free of this disease.

The combined efforts of 171 teams and thousands of individual walkers will make it possible to provide comprehensive care and unwavering support to people and families grappling with ALS.

Thank you for being a part of this extraordinary event, leaving an indelible mark on the fight against ALS.
