The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter Invites The Community To Participate In 2020 Walk
The ALS Association Rocky Mountain Chapter is holding their annual Walk To Defeat ALS ® remotely on Saturday, October 17th at 10:00am. The event will be available to stream through Facebook Live, YouTube Live, and Zoom. Individuals throughout the entire state are invited to participate!
The goal of the event is to raise money that will help facilitate support groups, equipment loans,care consultations, clinic visits, and educational events. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s event is going to look a little different since it will include participation in Utah,Wyoming, and Colorado:
“Although we won’t be able to see everyone in person this year, we are excited to go virtual to reach more participants all across Colorado, Utah and Wyoming,” said Caela Schaeffer, Senior Events Manager at the Rocky Mountain Chapter.
Individuals across all three states are invited to register for the Walk online through the Chapter’s website- web.alsa.org/RockyMtn . Participants can then begin planning their at-home Mini Walk:
“Your Mini Walk can look like a walk in your neighborhood, a picnic, a team caravan, and so much more,” said Schaeffer.
