2.  Raise Money by asking friends, family and acquaintances for a donation.

3.  Make a donation yourself.

4.  Make a donation of goods that can be sold at our Silent Auction.

5.  Form a Team and Come to the Walk!
Get your family and friends together to come walk. Your presence brings smiles, support and hope to those struggling day to day.

6.  VOLUNTEER! Volunteering your time may be the best thing you do – both for those with ALS and for yourself. 
Volunteers are needed to help with the walk – collect prizes for silent auction, set-up and take down tables and chairs, help with children’s activities, do face painting, provide musical entertainment, make balloon animals, etc…. 
The support group is managed by a small group of volunteers. In the past year, several members have had to resign for a variety of reasons.
Can you serve on the Board? There are only 4 meetings a year. If you have a heart for those with ALS and their families, send us a note and talk to us about serving for a year or two on our board!
