Walk to Defeat ALS
The Atlanta Walk to Defeat ALS is The Georgia Chapter's largest annual fundraising event. Since 2000, the Walk to Defeat ALSŪ national program has raised more than $262 million in support of The ALS Association’s mission: to create a world without ALS. Across the state of Georgia, people come together once a year to walk a few miles, and in turn, provide hope for people living with ALS. Register today to walk in honor, in memory, or to simply support the fight against ALS.Register Today
