2024 ALS United Walk - Event Details

On Saturday, September 14, our community will come together to support the Ocean City ALS United Walk at the Ocean City Sports & Civic Center. 

The Walk is ALS United Mid-Atlantic's largest fundraising event. Because of generous contributions from people like you, our organization can offer truly extraordinary patient care, second to none. Throughout 2023, ALS United delivered a full range of care services programs to enhance the quality of life for individuals and families impacted by ALS. We are unique in that no other ALS organization in our region serves patients in such a comprehensive way.

Every single person knows that their reach is far greater than the miles they walk. It extends to all ALS families, friends, and colleagues.

So, keep on walking. Keep on raising money and keep your positive attitude.

Together, we will make a difference, one step at a time.

Share Your Unity
Unity will be at the core of the ALS United Walk experience. Although each participant has a unique story that brings them to the ALS United Walk, their motivation is the same - to end ALS. To end ALS for someone they love, for their friend, or so that no one else has to suffer through this disease. Only through the power of unity, can this goal be achieved.
 
At the Walk, sign our 2024 Ocean City ALS United Walk Banner. Add the name of the person you Walk for and a sticker that represents your connection to ALS.

At the end of the Walk, we encourage everyone to stay for the Closing Ceremony. During this time, we will unveil the completed banner. The banner is a testament to the ALS community and the hundreds of people who showed up to sign their names to symbolize their unity to end ALS.

Parking
Parking information will be available closer to the Walk!
 
Weather
The ALS United Walk is rain or shine! Please check the local forecast before Walk Day and we will keep all participants informed if there is the possibility of severe weather.
