ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease) is a progressive neuromuscular disease in which nerve cells die and leave voluntary muscles paralyzed.
Every day two or three Canadians die of the disease.

National Volunteer Week April 12-18

It's National Volunteer Week and we would like to take this opportunity to offer our sincerest thanks to all of the volunteers who allow us to continue making each day the best possible day for people living with and affected by ALS. We consider ourselves very fortunate to continue working with such wonderful and dedicated volunteers year-round. We truly could not do what we do without your help, and without the continued support of all our communities. We hope we do a good job of expressing our gratitude every day, but this week we want to say it extra loud... THANK YOU!


Are you a Volunteer?

The ALS Society of Alberta is looking for volunteers to help our WALK Committees. Every year, with the support of the Society, volunteers put on fabulous walks all across Alberta. We really do have great volunteers, and we wouldn’t be able to have these walks without them!

Edmonton, Camrose and Red Deer have a current need for more volunteers to help with their upcoming WALKs. From being on the committee to just volunteering the day of the event, there are opportunities for every variation of volunteer.
