Walk to Defeat ALS
The Walk to Defeat ALS is an annual event held in communities across Massachusetts and throughout the country. Each local walk is between one and three miles in length and is a positive and uplifting day with food, games and activities for the whole family. It is our way of raising awareness of ALS and critical funds for those affected by ALS. Participants raise money through donations from friends, family, coworkers, or neighbors. You can join as an individual or a team, most people create teams to honor or show support of their loved ones with ALS.

We are challenging business and higher education leaders across the Commonwealth to join us on Thursday, June 10, 2021 at the Rings Fountain in the North End of Boston to get soaked and raise awareness and funds for The ALS Association Massachusetts Chapter; there’s even a virtual attendance option!
The CEO Soak presents a unique opportunity for members of the local business community to network all while working towards a common goal: ending ALS.
We hope that you’ll accept the challenge AND encourage your colleagues and fellow leaders to join us for our inaugural soak that supports the hundreds of Massachusetts ALS families affected by this disease.
