The purpose of the Walk to Defeat ALS® has always been to raise the bar on spreading ALS awareness while also supporting the mission-critical programs and services offered by the Greater Sacramento Chapter. Our team takes great pride in planning, engaging the ALS community, and executing our annual signature event. This year, due to COVID-19, we are facing unparalleled challenges that have forced us to once again reimagine the Walk to Defeat ALS®.
The health and safety of our community is paramount and—as such—the Cruise to Defeat ALS concept was born. However, after much back and forth with the City of West Sacramento, it has become evident that gatherings of more than 100 people, regardless of whether attendees are safely social distancing, will not be permitted in October.
But ALS doesn’t stop and neither do we. In place of the Cruise to Defeat, we are charging forward with the Walk Your Way movement. We will ensure that every one of you have the tools to Walk in a way that fulfills your personal commitment to a world without ALS. Whether that means organizing a mini Walk in your community, decorating your car or home, or leading your own neighborhood car cruise, we are here to help you spread awareness far and wide.
Over the next week, we will be reaching out to each Walk team captain to create a plan to bring the Walk to your neighborhood. We will support you every step of the way and promise to leave you fulfilled in your commitment to the ALS community.
We are closer than ever to our vision of a world without ALS and your commitment to the Greater Sacramento Walk to Defeat will get us there!
Together for a cure,
