2021 Minnesota Walk Details

East to West, and North to South, all communities are touched by this disease. The strength of ALS support shines through on Walk Day as we have come together at different Walk locations to honor those affected by ALS and raise critical funds to advance research, care, and advocacy for the ALS community.

This year, our Chapter wants to tap into all the communities’ momentum to create an even bigger Walk to Defeat ALS. As we Walk Your Way in 2021, we will be representing Minnesota with a resounding and emphatic message: We are committed to supporting our loved ones with ALS and finding a cause and cure for this disease. Wherever you are and whatever your connection, we can all rally as one on Walk Day!

Mankato + Rochester + St. Cloud + Twin Cities + everywhere in between = The Minnesota Walk to Defeat ALS on Saturday, September 11, 2021

If you have any questions about the Walk to Defeat ALS, website, or fundraising assistance, please reach out to us at walk@alsmn.org or 612-672-0484.
