12th Annual Les Turner ALS Walk4Life to Honor of those Affected by ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease)

September 21, 2013 | 9:30 am

Join the local ALS community at the 12th Annual Les Turner ALS Walk4Life on September 21 at Solider Field. This 2+ mile walk along Chicago’s lakefront is a celebration of hope, courage and community, and is an ideal way to support for those affected by Lou Gehrig’s disease.

Emceed by meteorologist Phil Schwarz of ABC7 and Kathy Hart of The Mix 101.9FM, the event will include music, entertainment, food and children’s activities. The Walk4Life will occur rain or shine.

Most participants walk as a team, honoring those living with ALS or in memory of someone who has passed away from the disease. Teams have clever names such as “Walkin” For Claud and “The Jake Walkers” and nearly every group designs their own personalized T-shirt.

The ALS Walk4Life is one of the world’s largest gatherings for the ALS community, and in its 11-year history, the Walk4Life has raised $8 million. Registration is free, but participants are encouraged to fundraise for the Les Turner ALS Foundation

Check-in 9:30 a.m. | Walk start 11:00 a.m. | 847-679-3311
