We are so thrilled you are joining us for the 2023 Los Angeles Walk to Defeat ALS! Whether this is your first time walking, or you have been participating for the past 20+ years, we thank you for your partnership and leadership. For those of you who are not able or available to join us in person, rest assured that you will be able to continue to Walk Your Way from wherever you call home with our support.

ALS is unrelenting as is our fight to defeat it. The Walk to Defeat ALS is much more than a one-day community gathering. It is a movement, a rally call, and a year-long effort to generate significant and necessary revenue in support of our organization's wraparound model of care that helps people live longer and better with ALS, while fueling global ALS research and important public policy initiatives to benefit the ALS Community.

The Walk will be held at UCLA Wilson Plaza in Los Angeles on November 12, 2023.
