2020 Virtual ALS Walk for Life

Diane's Beach Bums

In memory of Leon and Diane, and to continue Leon's fundraising efforts for ALS, we welcome your donations to the 2020 ALS Virtual Walk for Life.  Click on the "DONATE NOW" button to donate.

The ALS Walk for Life is one of the world's largest gatherings of ALS patients, families and friends. Now in its 17th year, the Walk has raised millions each year in support of Chicago's independent leader in ALS, the Les Turner ALS Foundation. The 2020 ALS Virtual Walk for Life will be held this year on September 26th starting at 11:00AM.

The walk supports the Les Turner ALS Research and Patient Center at Northwestern Medicine and three full functioning research laboratories, each one providing hope of a future without ALS.  

Leon led the Walk4Life each year since Diane was diagnosed with ALS in 2006. The Les Turner clinic and support group were extraordinary in helping Leon and Diane deal with a tremendously difficult situation.  Leon and Diane will be looking down on us this year as we walk and we'll be looking up and smiling, knowing their memory is spurring us on.

Join our team as we Walk to end ALS.
