Walk for HOPE. Walk for HELP. Walk for LIFE.
You Did It - Thank You!
A big thank you and congratulations to everyone who participated in our 20th Anniversary ALS Walk for Life this past Saturday. This includes our attendees, virtual walkers, sponsors and donors. We couldn't do this without all of you. It was so heartwarming to see everyone and to be back in person at Solider Field, we could feel the love and support all around.
One participant who attended their 14th Walk told us, "All of the warmth and excitement were again on full display...kudos to everyone for making the vision a reality during a global pandemic."
We were honored to recognize Chicago Bears Steve McMichael with the ALS Courage Award surrounded by his family, friends and former Bears players. It was a very moving moment. To make a donation and help find a cure for Steve McMichael and others living with ALS visit below.
Thank you to all the teams who received awards for their many years of dedication - 10-14 years; 15-19 years; 20 years. We were also excited to welcome nearly 50 new teams to their first Walk. You all are the heart and soul of the ALS Walk for Life!
A 20 year team captain emphasized how important it was to be together again by saying, "The vibe in the crowd was as high energy and smile-filled as always...the connection and camaraderie was evident all around."
The 2021 ALS Walk for Life event has come and gone but the ALS fundraising has not stopped, we are still accepting funds until the end of the year. Please continue to encourage your friends, family and co-workers to help increase your team's impact. You can even check to see if your company will match your gift.
