Oregon and SW Washington Chapter

Portland Metro Walk

NAUinPDX

You can find Northern Arizona University Alumni all over the country. While we may have attended school elsewhere, we care about the communities that we live in today. Our Alumni proudly serve and support local chapters of many great causes, and the Oregon and SW Washington Chapter of the ALS Association is certainly one of them. The Portland Chapter of the NAU Alumni Association is here, and we are #NAUStrong! We are glad to walk, and raise funds for this very important charity.  We are NAUinPDX!


Together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Our team is committed to raising money to support people in our community with ALS and spread awareness of the urgency to find treatment and a cure. Please consider joining our team in the Walk to Defeat ALS® or choose a team member from the list and donate to our cause.


Why We Need Your Help
Often referred to as Lou Gehrig's Disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of an ALS patient averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.


Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.


This crippling disease can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease yet it still costs loved ones an average of $200,000 a year to provide the care ALS patients need. Help make a difference and donate or join a walk today.
