Thanks to all that participated in the Walk for ALS – held Saturday June 4th at at Assiniboine Park.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal, rapidly progressive neuromuscular disease that currently affects between 2,500 and 3,000 Canadians, more than 200 of which live right here in Manitoba. Money raised in the Walk for ALS not only goes towards research to find a cure for ALS, it also helps to provide support services to families affected by ALS.

Last year, Winnipeg’s Walk raised over $108,000, thanks to the efforts of more than 700 combined walkers and volunteers, as well as our many generous sponsors.

You can still donate – please visit the ALS Website for more info.
