Event FAQ's 
Walk for HOPE. Walk for HELP. Walk for LIFE.

Is there a registration fee to participate and/or a fundraising minimum?
We encourage anyone and everyone to participate so there is no registration fee. However, we do encourage each participant to set a fundraising goal of at least $100.

When do you begin and stop collecting donations for the Walk?

Since the ALS Walk for Life has become the Les Turner ALS Foundation’s signature event, we begin collecting donations January 1 and will keep our books open until December 31. We encourage you to turn in your money as early as possible but will accept donations on Walk day and after the Walk. Please ensure all checks are made out to the Les Turner ALS Foundation and that anytime you turn in money, your team name and the walker who should be credited is clearly indicated on the check and/or envelope.

Where should I mail checks?

Please mail checks only (no cash) to:

Les Turner ALS Foundation
Attn: ALS Walk for Life

5550 W Touhy Avenue, Suite 302
Skokie, IL 60077

Checks should be made payable to the Les Turner ALS Foundation and remember to indicate your team name and the walker that should be credited somewhere on the envelope.  All offline gifts will be uploaded to your team page and reflected in your team’s fundraising total.

Can I submit to the March of Faces Banner?
Yes! The March of Faces Banner is a pictorial display of the courageous women and men—both past and present— with ALS. The banners are used to heighten public awareness, raise funds for patient services and research, as well as advocate on issues that benefit people living with ALS and their families. The Foundation maintains several banners of people living with ALS from the Chicagoland area and displays them at special events throughout the year, including the Walk. Learn more and submit a photo to the March of Faces Banner here!
