Walk for HOPE. Walk for HELP. Walk for LIFE.

The ALS Walk for Life is Chicagoland's largest gatherings of the ALS community and we are so excited to bring the Les Turner ALS Foundation family together for a day of celebrating our loved ones who are currently living with or have passed away from ALS. 

The Walk benefits the Les Turner ALS Foundation, the leader in comprehensive ALS care in Chicagoland. Although we’re one of the largest independent ALS groups in the country, we treat each person like family and we’re committed to supporting them every step of the way. Our individualized approach ensures each person living with the disease receives the best quality of care, and our local community of support provides their loved ones with answers and encouragement. Our Les Turner ALS Center at Northwestern Medicine is led by the most well-respected and successful clinicians and researchers in the field, advancing vital care and research in pursuit of life-enhancing treatments and a cure.

Whether it's your first time at the ALS Walk for Life or you're a seasoned veteran, questions about the day are bound to come up. We've put together an extensive list of all the questions we've heard of the past 17 years of holding the Walk and encourage you to look through the document to have your questions answered. 

If you look through and still don't see your specific question and answer, feel free to email or call our office at events@lesturnerals.org or 847 679 3311.
