This season we are happy to offer WALK YOUR WAY New York City- choose any of our in-person locations or "Walk from Home" on Saturday, September 25th. In working with our venues and abiding by CDC, state, and local guidelines we are committed to letting people walk where and when they are most comfortable.

Your participation in The Walk to Defeat ALS fuels our search for effective treatments and a cure while offering care services for people living with ALS and their families. With that in mind, here is everything you need to know about the 2021 Walk to Defeat ALS event:

2020 Walk Shirt

T-Shirts

Only participants who've raised $100 will get a t-shirt. This benefit is awarded to individuals, not teams or donors, so make sure the donations to your personal fundraising record add up!

In addition to working toward one for yourself, you should spread the word to encourage your friends, family, and coworkers to earn their very own shirt.
