Printer-friendly version

HME Mobility & Accessibility and Sunrise Medical have signed a three year agreement with the ALS Society if B.C. as the presenting sponsors of the Walks for ALS in B.C. and the Yukon.

The Walks for ALS are the ALS Society's signature fundraising event, which brings together family and friends in support of ALS. From a modest beginning in 2001 with eight walks across the country, the WALK for ALS has grown to more than 90 Walks in 2018.

Donations made to the WALK for ALS help in two very critical ways;
By supporting the provincial ALS societies in their direct services for people with ALS and their families, such as equipment assistance, referrals to local health care and community services, educational information, home visits and co-ordination of peer support groups. To ensure the best quality of life possible living with ALS.

By supporting the Canadian ALS Research Program and its ability to fund breakthrough research into the causes, treatments and, ultimately, a cure for ALS.
