Due to dangerously high levels of smoke in the air, with air quality levels ranging from unhealthy to hazardous, and unpredictable weather forecasts, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2017 Central Oregon Walk to Defeat ALS and 2017 Southern Oregon Walk to Defeat ALS events. The health and safety of our people living with ALS, walk participants, volunteers, and staff is of utmost importance.

Though we are extremely disappointed and concerned for everyone impacted by these fires, the mission continues and we will not let these fires dampen the spirit of the Central & Southern Oregon Walk to Defeat ALS®. Even though we will not be coming together this weekend, we can still work together to meet our goal in support of the fight against ALS and the community it affects.
