The Walk to Defeat ALS draws people of all ages and athletic abilities coming together to honor a loved one with the disease, to remember those who have passed and to show their support for the cause. This year the Walk is Virtual, meaning we encourage everyone to Walk Your Way. Click the video (left) to hear San Diego Walk Coordinator LeeAnn Casey explain Walk Your Way!
2020 Greater San Diego Walk to Defeat ALS
5th Annual ALS Fiesta on Aug 12 went Virtual!
Thank you to all the amazing PALS, Volunteers, Guest Speakers, Sponsors, Donors, and ALS Community Members that helped to create a very special 5th Annual ALS Fiesta on August 12, 2020. During this digital experience, we were able to see and hear firsthand from many of the people affected by ALS we serve, as we celebrated our Care Services Team (Keith Miller and Lindsey Liebenberg) and the ALS Clinic at UC San Diego. Although a critical fundraiser for our chapter, viewing the Fiesta was complimentary to all - and together we raised our $80,000 donation goal! The Fiesta has been viewed more than 1.2K times and the recording can be watched here: View on Facebook or View on YouTube.
