Betty's Run for ALS celebrates, promotes and channels hope for those affected with ALS, their families and their friends.
In 1996, Calgarian Betty Norman was diagnosed with ALS. Her year-long physical and emotional battle with this terrible disease inspired her friends and family to organize an annual fundraiser. Betty's Run for ALS has grown steadily to become one of the largest ALS fundraisers in Canada.
Over the past 18 years, Betty's Run has raised more than $6 million thanks to Calgarians and the corporate community. Of funds raised, 60% stay in Alberta to support those currently living with ALS through equipment and client services. The remaining 40% of funds support ongoing research into identifying the cause and cure for this devastating disease. This year we are inviting our past 18 years of "Betty's Run family" back, along with new friends to continue inspiring care, hope and community.
