Our Vision

To make ALS history.

What is ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, is a progressive neurodegenerative disease. ALS attacks cells in the brain and spinal cord that are needed to keep muscles moving, leading to muscle weakness and paralysis.

It takes a community

The Intentional Walk for ALS returns on Saturday, June 10 at the Pride of Canada Carousel in downtown Markham. Join us for a morning of hope, inspiration and community. Sonia lost her husband Gianni to ALS in October 2022. Family and friends supported her and her family throughout Gianni's battle with ALS. Today she asks you to continue the support by participating in the Intentional Walk.
