Event Description

The Walk to Defeat ALS is The ALS Association's national signature event. Each year, over 150,000 people including people living with ALS, families, friends and corporate leaders join together to raise funds in support of The Association’s cutting-edge research and community-based patient services programs.

Now in its eleventh year, approximately 150 Walks will be held around the country in 2010, with 6 hosted locally in Oregon and SW Washington.

Registration Opens at 11am & the Walk starts at 12pm
This event is a 3 mile non-competitive walk.

In 2010, our goal is to raise over $400,000 for continued programs and services on a local and national level!
We need your help to achieve this goal!

Why Walk?

Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS
every 90 minutes another person will lose his or her life to ALS.

The Walk to Defeat ALS offers an empowering opportunity for patients, family members, friends, companies and organizations across the country to raise significant funds to support comprehensive patient service programs and cutting-edge research.

By participating, both walkers and donors directly impact the lives of those affected by ALS as well as spread awareness for this disease and the urgent need to find treatments and a cure.

I was looking out my back window, when I saw this deer. First it smelled one of our plants, then it walked up to the hummingbird feeder and smelled the flowers on it.
