A great event is happening Saturday at McCormick Park - it's the Missoula Walk to Defeat ALS!

ALS is a disease that effects the body's nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord.  You might know it as Lou Gehrig's Disease.  Fundraising through the Walk helps the treatment of ALS and the goal of funding a cure.

All ages and athletic abilities are welcome to walk to honor those affected by ALS as well as remembering those who have passed.

The 2.5 mile walk begins at 11:00 AM on Saturday.

The ALS Association’s premier event, our Walk to Defeat ALS® 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 last 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 2019!
