Welcome to ALS Double Play's
Virtual 5k Intentional Walk for ALS!
Yes, we thought we'd be able to see you in person this year! Unfortunately COVID19 had other plans and so we'll continue to be safe and walk virtually with you.
Why should I participate?
Help us raise awareness for ALS during the month of June, ALS awareness month in Canada. When you register to participate and fundraise, you help provide hope to those who live with ALS.
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.
Why should I fundraise?
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.
Your fundraising efforts and generous donations help us understand more about this little understood disease. There are currently 65 clinical trials available for ALS today in Canada. Many of these trials are only available today because of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that happened in 2014. Now imagine what we can accomplish if we just keep going!
