$40,000 GOAL

$12,960 Raised


THE ALS SOCIETY OF ALBERTA strives to make each day the best possible day for people living with and affected by ALS. We achieve this by providing support, facilitating the provision of care, promoting awareness, helping find a cure and advocating for change. 60% of funds raised at the WALK to End ALS are allocated to client support services in Alberta. This includes the equipment loan program, support groups, home visits, referrals and support for children through the Support for Champions program. The remaining 40% support ongoing ALS research across Canada through the National Research Program.

The ALS community knows a thing or two about resilience, courage and adaptability – so let’s come together virtually to show it! As the World responds to the COVID-19 pandemic with physical distancing and the safety of our community, we’re turning the Walk to End ALS into a fully online event. Now more than ever, your fundraising for the Walk to End ALS will help to provide much needed supports for people affected by ALS and funding for ALS research.


Although we can’t walk together, we’re all here together to support each other.  Register and fundraise online for the virtual Walk today and join the ALS community on ALS Global Awareness day on June 21!

Virtual Walk

The Lethbridge WALK for ALS has been championed by the Thom Family over the past two years. It all began when Gerard Thom selflessly donated his time and efforts to spread awareness about ALS, and act as the Ambassador for the Lethbridge WALK. His unwavering  commitment to the cause was shared by his wife Shelley and son Adam, and they continue to pursue unique initiatives in Lethbridge in support of the ALS Society of Alberta. Gerard passed away from ALS in June of 2017, and this year we will walk in honour of the incredible person that he was, and celebrate his legacy that will live on for years to come.
