That’s a wrap! Our September events have come to an end at ALS Canada, and we can’t help but look back at how the community came out to ride and pull to end ALS. Both the ALS Canada Pull to End ALS and ALS Canada Revolution Ride bring us together in unique and challenging ways, demonstrating our commitment to raising awareness, honouring the people we’ve loved and lost, and ultimately helping change the future of ALS.

Pull to End ALS

The Pull to End ALS never fails to make an impact – while the shock of challenging yourself to pull a 42,000-lb transport truck is mighty, the energy everyone brings to the event with the shared goal of a future without ALS is mightier. As teams stepped up to pull, cheered on by friends and family, we were reminded that the weight of the challenge is nothing compared to the weight 3,000 Canadians living with ALS face every day. This year, the Pull to End ALS raised an incredible $189,000 and counting – funds that are critical for research investment, community-based support services, and advocacy initiatives!

Revolution Ride

The ALS community knows the power we hold together, and at this year’s Revolution Ride, we weren’t afraid to show it! Coming together in picturesque Dundas, Ontario, riders geared up to take on the new 12km route and the familiar 40km and 90km routes – riding to change what it means to receive an ALS diagnosis. You can look back at the magic of the day in our photo albumreflecting on the sunny skies and inspiring energy encompassing the event as we came together to make a difference. With the generous support of our riders, those who donated, and the event volunteer committee, the event was an outstanding success, raising $280,000 and going – all to help in our work to create a future without ALS! 

ALS Canada would like to thank everyone who participated and supported the Pull to End ALS and Revolution Ride. This September was a reminder that together, we are stronger as we work toward our shared cause – changing the reality of receiving an ALS diagnosis. Though the year isn’t over yet – stay tuned to our social channels to see what exciting events are happening next!
