About the Walk to End ALS

The Walk to End ALS is the largest volunteer-led fundraiser for ALS Societies across Canada. Family-friendly and fun, it unites Canadians in their desire to put an end to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Celebrate hope for a future without ALS. Honour those we have loved and lost. Show support and give hope to clients and their families living with this disease.

Help and Hope for People Affected by ALS

Your fundraising efforts and generous donations enable ALS Societies to provide community-based support to people and families living with the disease and support the best ALS research in the country.

60% Community-Based Support

Sixty percent of proceeds directly benefit the ALS Society of Manitoba, enabling us to provide community-based support to people affected by ALS/MND. Support varies by province based on the gaps within the healthcare system and can include educational information, referrals to local health care and community services, equipment assistance, home visits and support groups.

40% Research

Forty percent of proceeds are directed to the ALS Canada Research Program where they are invested in the best ALS research in Canada awarded annually following a peer-reviewed competition.

About the Brain Canada Match

  • In 2023, 40% of funds raised through the Walk are being earmarked for a match from Brain Canada. Please note that the other 60% raised will fund community-based support and is not eligible for the match.
  • Matched funds will be invested in ALS research in 2023.
  • Charitable tax receipts will be issued for all donations received in 2023 and in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency guidelines will be for the donation amount only. Donations will not be designated for a specific research project, professional, institution, or area of study.
  • The Canada Brain Research Fund is an innovative partnership between the Government of Canada (through Health Canada) and Brain Canada, designed to encourage Canadians to increase their support of brain research and maximize the impact and efficiency of those investments.

Memories of 2022...

The day started off nice and sunny. Introductions were announced by Frank from 93.7 CJNU. Warm-ups were led by Rachel Kashton to get everyone limbered up and our President (now past president), Micheline Chaput, got us started off and down the path.  The 2022 Walk to End ALS had begun!

Some showers crept in during the walk. However, one attendee pointed out that “the showers may be making us damp, but they weren’t going to dampen our spirits!”

Gradually the rain dissipated, giving way to glorious sunshine once again. 

We had a wonderful time and brought a lot of hope to those living with ALS/MND. We can’t wait to see you at the Walk in 2023.

In the meantime enjoy some of these memories in the gallery below…
