On Saturday, April 14, 2018, more than 800 people will gather at Vista View Park in Davie to join the fight to find a cure for a deadly illness.   ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, progressively paralyzes its victims, attacking nerve cells and pathways in the brain or spinal cord, taking away their ability to walk, talk, eat and eventually breathe. ALS has no known cause or cure, but the South Florida community is rallying together to change that.

Wheelchair-bound patients along with their families and friends will make a 2-mile trek in The Walk to Defeat ALS®, hoping their steps will make a difference for people living with ALS in Florida.  Many who walk have a loved one who is fighting the deadly disease.  Others walk in memory of a loved one who has lost the battle.  Many people, without any personal connection, walk out of a simple concern for those who are suffering with Lou Gehrig’s Disease.
