Can you believe it? We’re less than two weeks away from the virtual Walk to End ALS happening next weekend on Sunday, June 20!

Although we can’t be together in-person again this year, we’ve gone the extra mile to unite everyone safely again, before and after we all “walk”. The drill is the same as last year: We’ll be coming together on ALS Canada’s Facebook page, where all the magic will happen! You don’t need a Facebook account, but if you have one, we recommend logging on as this will allow you to interact and leave comments! Keep reading to learn about the fun we have in store for you.

 


10:00am | Walk to End ALS Start line:

Join us online at 10:00am to kick-off the Walk to End ALS with our emcee, Justin Landry (you may recognize him from his many roles at our events and possibly from his work in The Handmaid’s Tale). Justin will get us warmed up and inspired for the day by speaking with Tammy Moore, CEO of ALS Canada, along with community members, Mike and Carmen Cels.

 

10:30am – 12:00pm | Your Walk, Your way:

You’ll have 90 minutes to complete your chosen activities (walking, cooking, dancing, meditation – anything that brings you joy!) and we’ll share updates from across the province throughout the day across ALS Canada social media accounts. Be sure to take pictures to share with the community on social media by tagging @ALSCanada, your local Walk social media pages and use the hashtag #WalkToEndALS in your posts.

 

12:00pm | Walk to End ALS Finish line:

Tune in again on the ALS Canada Facebook page for an hour of celebration! Expect celebrity appearances; live performances; messages from ALS community members, including Taya Jones; and recognition of top teams and fundraisers! Keep your eye out for a few surprises along the way.

 


 

Although we’re still keeping our distance, the virtual Walk to End ALS allows us to show and feel just how closely knit and resilient our community really is. We can’t wait to “see” you there next Sunday, June 20 and in the meantime, here are some ways for you to get ready to participate on event day:
