The Walk to End ALS is the largest volunteer-led fundraiser for ALS Societies across Canada. Family-friendly and fun, it unites Canadians in their desire to put an end to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Celebrate hope for a future without ALS. Honour those we have loved and lost. Show support for the 3,000 Canadians and their families living with the disease.Your generous donations support the best ALS research in the country and enable ALS Societies to provide community-based support to people and families living with the disease.
Starting every January, ALS Society of BC needs to fundraise $2 Million for the year to ensure families who have a loved one with ALS can receive support equipment to maintain a comfortable quality of life at home for as long as possible. None of the equipment (walkers, wheelchairs, lifts & slings, eyegaze tablet communication devices, hospital beds, etc.) is currently covered by BC Healthcare. Families can face spending tens of thousands of dollars.
If you are able, please donate-- our family was so fortunate to benefit from ALS BC's equipment as my mother's disease progressed.
Please help us end ALS by signing up for the Walk or making a donation.
On behalf of the ALS Society of BC board, staff, volunteers, ALS patients and their families, we thank you for your support!
