Join us on Saturday, September 21st as we walk united towards a CURE for ALS. 

Our Mission: 

Every day someone in Georgia hears the words, “You have ALS.” In that moment, everything changes. They often don’t know what they need or where to find help.

Information, support, resources. People who understand what it is like to live with this disease every day. That’s what people need after receiving an ALS diagnosis. They need a place to turn. They need a place that cares.  ALS United of Georgia is that place.

Walk ALS Georgia is the largest fundraising and awareness event in Georgia. ALS United of Georgia is dedicated to enhancing the lives of Georgians living with ALS and their families by providing personalized care services, fostering a supportive community, and advancing research focused on treatments and a cure.

The money raised through Walk ALS Georgia allows our organization to provide these services and programs free of charge. Every participant registered and every dollar raised makes a difference in the lives of those living with ALS. THANK YOU for your continued support! 

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

Walk Day is a culmination of all the hard work and fundraising efforts of our teams, participants, donors, volunteers and sponsors. Thousands of people come together to rally around our ALS Heroes, and honor the memory of the loved ones we've lost. The atmosphere is absolutely electric as thousands of people step off from the Georgia State Stadium Plaza and make their way towards the Georgia State Capitol. 

Have you been impacted by ALS in some way? Whether you are walking in honor or in memory of a loved one, or simply because you are passionate about the cause - we would love for you to join us by starting a Walk Team! Rally your network of friends, family, and co-workers to join you as you take steps toward a CURE for ALS.
