We achieve our mission by providing support, facilitating the provision of care, promoting awareness, helping find a cure and advocating for change.
2019 Walk to End ALS
The Walk to End ALS is one of the signature events hosted by the ALS Society of Alberta. In 2018, there were 11 Walks for ALS across the province, plus Betty's Run for ALS in Calgary. Each Walk is organized by a hardworking team of volunteers, with support from the ALS Society of Alberta.
2019 Betty’s Run for ALS
Betty's Run for ALS celebrates, promotes and channels hope for those affected with ALS, their families and their friends. Over the past 23 years, Betty's Run has raised over $7 million due to the generous support of donors and participants.
Equipment Loan Program
Through our provincial loan program we are able to assist people living with ALS by lending power mobility devices, assistive communication devices, and other medical equipment. The Equipment Loan Program is free of charge, to ensure support is available when needed.
Client Support Services
In order to make each day the best day possible for people living with and affected by ALS, we provide home visits, support groups, information, referrals and support for youth through our Support for Champions Program. The Society also provides services in the Northwest Territories when required.
