Walk Logo

The ALS Association’s premier event, our Walk to Defeat ALS(r) is an outlet for communities across the nation to demonstrate their concern for and the urgent need to find the cure for ALS while providing the best care for those who are currently battling the disease.

What began more than 15 years ago as a grassroots effort to increase awareness has now turned into a National Signature Event that the entire ALS community rallies behind, growing the number of teams and participants each year.

Whether reinvigorated by the Ice Bucket Challenge 2014 or new and concerned about our cause, over 150,000 ALS supporters nationwide participated in local Walks this year. It was incredible to feel your support, as Walks across the country broke fundraising and attendance records, and enthusiasm was off the charts!

Help us keep the momentum going in 2022!

We will adhere to all state and federal regulations for COVID-19 to ensure safety of our volunteers, staff, and participants.

About ALS Association- Massachusetts Chapter

Location:

685 Canton St., Suite 103, Norwood, MA 02062, US

Mission Statement

The ALS Association (National Office and Massachusetts Chapter) operates under a shared mission: to lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global cutting-edge research, and to empower people with Lou Gehrig’s Disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support.

Description

The Massachusetts Chapter of the ALS Association was founded on January 27, 1990, to serve the needs of those living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and their caregivers. The Chapter provides no-cost services to ALS families which include support groups, home visits, insurance counseling, referrals to community resources, durable medical equipment loans, the Care Connection program, education, and support.

The ALS Association is the only national non-profit health organization dedicated solely to the fight against ALS. They address research, patient and community services, public education, and advocacy as they provide help and hope to those facing this disease.

We work together to accomplish our mission. The Massachusetts Chapter focuses primarily on helping local patients and families living with ALS while the National Office focuses primarily on research and advocacy. The Chapter supports the National Office through revenue sharing and research contributions. The National Office supports the Chapters by providing up-to-date information and materials. Our commitment to both helping people living with ALS and their families, and funding research worldwide is spoken emphatically through our Chapter slogan ~

"Providing care today. Supporting hope for tomorrow."
