Remember the ICE Bucket challenge back in 2014? We all got very excited about raising money for ALS research. People across the country, dumped ice cubes and freezing water over themselves and their friends. Others walked in organized events in their communities.
And it worked! Over 16.2 million dollars was raised in Canada for research and that has paid off. There are now more than 100 Canadian ALS researchers and new drugs are being developed that help to slow the progress of this disease.
We need to keep that momentum going. In our family it is personal. My dad, two of his sisters, and one of my cousins have already died of ALS and now the son of another cousin has been diagnosed with this familial form of the disease. I’m asking you to help me raise money that will go towards research as well as support for the families of the over 3000 Canadians living with ALS today.
The Walk for ALS has now become the Walk to End ALS and you can help by donating to my fundraising effort and if you are in Victoria you can join me on the walk at UVic on Sunday, September 15. Wear something purple if you have it, and let others know what you are doing.
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.
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!
