19th Annual Walk to Defeat ALS

Arizona ALS Chapter breaks goal at new location

The ALS Association Arizona Chapter raised $470,000 on Nov. 2 at the 19th annual Walk to Defeat ALS. The event, which helped raise money and awareness for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, was one of the largest to date. This year, the event moved to Salt River Fields and accommodated 4,000 people in attendance.

Participants could walk either a 3K or a half-mile fun course to raise funds for the association. The money goes toward education, support groups, access to care, advocacy and finding a cure for the currently fatal disease. The Arizona Cardinals cheer squad helped pump up walkers with dance moves while the Arizona Coyotes sent Howler and his street team to meet the families making a difference for the community.
