By joining Team ALS Canada, you will be helping support Canadians living with ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) in Ontario and funding world-class research to find a treatment for ALS. Last year, our team raised more than $31,000 through the STWM. This year, we're aiming higher, with the goal to raise $50,000 with 100 participants. We know we can do it with your help! Each step makes a difference. ALS is a progressively, degenerative disease. There is no treatment. Once diagnosed, you have on average two to five years to live. As we look to the future, by 2040, The World Health Organization has stated that neurodegenerative diseases, including ALS, will be the second leading cause of death in Canada by 2040. The more awareness and dollars raised, means one step closer to combatting this reality.
Each fundraiser on Team ALS Canada will receive a Team ALS Canada t-shirt and bracelet. For past participants who raised a minimum of $450 in 2014, your registration fee will be waived.
