ALS Association fundraiser stays close to home


September 10, 2020

The ALS Association Evergreen Chapter says there is no better time for partner walking and fundraising than September. On September 19, join the fight against ALS with A Walk in Your Neighborhood.

The Evergreen Chapter covers nearly one million square miles, the largest chapter in the Association, and has been helping families affected by Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis since 1999.

The ALS Association had 11 different walk events planned before the coronavirus pandemic struck, so this year they are hosting the #ALLWALKS1DAY event, asking that teams stay in their neighborhoods, at local parks, or on nearby trails to walk, run, ride or drive. So far, the Association has reached nearly 20% of its $678,000 goal.

Teams will need to register online for the event to begin fundraising. Social media and email fundraising are accepted, as well as cash and check donations, and the Association has yard signs available for a $25 donation.

Lanyard and key pickup for the Tri-Cities area will be Friday, September 11, at Badger Mountain Trailhead Park, from 3 p.m.- 6 p.m. This year, the ALS Association has added a Strava Club, where participants can log their routes and mileage and interact with other participants across the chapter.

For further information, team registration, or donations, visit, or contact the Association at
