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

Saturday, September 24, 2022
Soldier Field in Chicago, IL

Join our Les Turner ALS family this year for Chicagoland’s largest gathering of people living with ALS and their friends and family! Teams fundraise in honor or memory of a loved one living with ALS and gather in a day full of celebration, hope, and courage. With food, music, and children’s activities, the day is meant for all those who love or have loved someone living with ALS to come together as one, big family.

When you attend the ALS Walk for Life, you’ll take a two-mile stroll along Chicago’s beautiful lakefront and finish your walk by going through iconic Soldier Field before crossing the finish line. Come, join our family, and together we will create a world free of ALS.

We are currently planning for an in-person event at Soldier Field this fall and will follow all local and state safety guidelines regarding COVID-19. Should state/local government guidelines change, we will switch to a virtual format as we did in 2020.

Registration Fees
There is no charge to participate in the Walk, but fundraising is encouraged! To be eligible to receive an official event t-shirt, participants will need to fundraise a minimum of $100.

The funds raised help the Les Turner ALS Foundation provide personalized care visits by ALS support services coordinators, support meetings, educational materials and programs, access to medical equipment and communication devices and need-based grants. The Foundation exists to care for those affected by the disease, guide them to answers, support them and their loved ones, and provide hope through scientific research. Your support makes it all possible!
