The Greater Tampa Bay Walk to Defeat ALS


Event Phone: (813) 637-9000

Every 90 minutes someone’s diagnosed with ALS or passes away from ALS. There are over 5,000 people diagnosed with ALS each year.

The ALS Association will hold a walk on Saturday, April 22nd to raise awareness of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) disease and fundraise for research.  The walk begins at Whiskey Joe’s Grill – 7720 W. Courtney Campbell Causeway, Tampa, FL, 33607 and should take about an hour.

Currently, scientists don’t know what causes ALS. Once someone is diagnosed, it is considered terminal. There is no cure. It is an always fatal neurodegenerative disease in which a person’s brain loses connection with the muscles. People with ALS lose their ability to walk, talk, eat and eventually breather. That is why social awareness and fundraising for medical research is so important. Once diagnosed, average life expectancy is 2-5 years.
