2021 Greater San Diego Walk to Defeat ALS

This year's Greater San Diego Chapter Walk to Defeat ALS will be held Sunday October 17, 2021. For twenty years in a row, the Greater San Diego Walk has been an extremely powerful and inspirational occasion, drawing people of all ages and backgrounds together to honor a loved one with the disease, to remember those who have passed, and to show their support for the cause. We are working closely with our local health officials, state offices, and venue in assessing the potential for in-person events in the Fall. As always, the safety of people living with ALS, our event participants, volunteers, and partners are our #1 priority. Though we are uncertain we will be able to host in-person events in the Fall, we encourage you to register for Walk to Defeat ALS today and be part of our online community. ALS doesn’t stop and neither do we!
