Knoxville’s “Walk to Defeat ALS” 2013

ALS Association

This year’s Walk to Defeat ALS is Saturday, September 14.

More than just a few-mile trek, the Walk to Defeat ALS® is an opportunity to bring hope to people living with ALS, to raise money for a cure, and to come together for something you care about. The Walk to Defeat ALS® is The ALS Association’s biggest annual event, which raises funds to sustain care services and support research for much of the next year. (source) Since its inception in 2001, $159 MILLION have been raised to help raise money for a cure, care services, research, education, advocacy and to influence public policy.

You have the opportunity to help raise money for team “Miles for Mom.” Link to donation page coming soon.

More info on the 9/14 walk can be found here.

ALS Association, Event updates

We want to give a HUGE THANK YOU to everyone. The final amount raised is $6,140 raised to fight ALS. Not too bad for the first year. We could not have done it without the kindness and support of each of you.

Go ahead and mark your calendars for May 10, 2014 for the Second Annual Drive Out ALS Charity Golf Tournament.

Until then, friends.

That was the scene at The ALS Association’s 2012 National ALS Advocacy Day and Public Policy Conference held in Washington, DC May 13-15. Click here to read the full report.
