Welcome to ALS Double Play's Mind Body Bingo!
We know you understand what it means to be part of a resilient, brave and adaptable community and we’re excited to announce that this year, we’re coming together virtually to make ALS history! Instead of our annual Intentional Walk for ALS, we have turned to an online experience in light of the evolving situation with COVID19 and physical distancing measures being taken to stop its spread.
What is Mind Body Bingo?
Instead of a virtual walk, we have compiled a fun list of different activities you can do to move your body and calm your mind during COVID19. These activities can be done alone or with those you are self-isolating with at home. They can be done in your home or in your backyard. The idea is to try something new, have some fun, and do something great for your body and mind. You have the month of June to complete the challenge of finishing all the activities on your Bingo card. And if you still want to walk, walking is an activity on each of our bingo cards!
Throughout the challenge, we ask that you interact with us on social media. Use the hashtags #MindBodyBingo and #makeALShistory and tag us @ALSdoubleplay so we can share your progress.
Why should I participate?
While there have been significant new advances for ALS treatment in recent years, there is still no cure, nor effective treatment yet. We are proud to say that ALS Double Play has completed a three-year Fellowship for ALS research and has already embarked upon supporting a second Fellowship with the University of Toronto. Read more about the new Christopher Chiu Fellow for ALS research here.
Of course, fundraising is not mandatory, but please know that the charitable sector has been hard hit. ALS does not stop and neither do we. We need your help to meet our goals to continue funding research and raising awareness for this deadly disease.
