If you are not already signed up, sign up today (for FREE) for the Walk to Defeat ALS event nearest you, encourage your friends and family to join you, and participate in the Grand Slam Challenge this month!

Registered participants will be invited to step up to the plate to “hit” a single, double, triple, and Grand Slam to advance around the bases on our game board. As a thank you, we will be sending our limited edition bandana to those who cross all of the bases, reaching a Grand Slam.

Complete these actions in ANY ORDER, but we recommend the following:

1. Update your personal fundraising page with at least one photo, video, and/or personal words about why you participate in the Walk to Defeat ALS.

2. Recruit one or more new team members to register on your team or as an individual walker and send your Community Outreach Partner an email, naming your new recruit(s)!

3. Send one or more emails through your Walk participant center to raise ALS awareness, ask for donations, and encourage others to join your team.

4. Make a self-donation and/or fundraise $81 or more to your Walk participant page, in tribute to the 81st anniversary of Lou Gehrig's "Luckiest Man Alive" speech.


As you make your "ALS hits" by completing these actions, your name will be listed on the leaderboard shown below, AND here are the additional prizes you can win:

Hit a single (one action): Nice base hit! You're on the leaderboard!

Hit a double (two actions): Your name will be entered into a drawing** among fellow hitters in your Virtual Walk to Defeat ALS to win a $50 Visa gift card!

Hit a triple (three actions): Your name will be entered into a drawing** among fellow hitters in your Virtual Walk to Defeat ALS to win a $100 Visa gift card! Almost to home plate!

Hit a Grand Slam (all four actions): We'll send you our exclusive, limited edition bandana, and your name will be entered into a drawing** for a $250 Visa gift card! ONE LUCKY WINNER for the entire Chapter will be picked at the conclusion of the Grand Slam Challenge.

** EXTENSION: Drawing Winners will be selected on Thursday, August 6. This means Walk to Defeat ALS participants will have until 11:59pm on Wednesday, August 5 to complete their actions!

Don't forget the power of social media to let people know that you are at-bat to defeat ALS! Be sure to tag @alsagoldenwest and use #WalktoDefeatALS.
