2024 ALS United Walk - Event Details

On Saturday, September 28, our community will come together to support the Lehigh Valley ALS United Walk at Cedar Crest College. 

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.

Fundraising Incentives

Participants who raise $100 by Wednesday, September 11, will receive a Walk t-shirt. 2024 ALS United Walk t-shirts will only be awarded to individual fundraisers, not teams or donors.

Here is a few ways to raise $100 in a week:

  • Each day, ask a different person to donate $20.
  • Donate $20 to your fundraiser. Then ask three friends to donate $10, two relatives to donate $20, and a neighbor to donate $10.
