Click Here for more information. We are continuing to evaluate our planned Chapter’s activities and events, in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Ohio Department of Health guidelines. We are promoting everyday preventive health actions to all our participants and staff.

Walk Your Way logo-05.png


Across our 55 county territory, we plan to continue to Walk As One again this year, due to on-going COVID regulations put out by the Ohio Department of Health and endorsed by Gov. DeWine. But, we aren't going to let that slow us down!
That means, this year we will again "Walk Your Way -- Walk As One", in your own neighborhoods, our local parks, or maybe just right on front porches or in our back yards! The strength of ALS supporters will shine through on Walk Day as we come together at different Walk locations to honor those affected by ALS and raise critical funds to advance care, advocacy and research for the ALS community. 
From Cincinnati + Dayton + Columbus + Lima and everywhere in between = The ALS Association Central & Southern Ohio Chapter Walk to Defeat will take place as ONE on Sunday September 26, 2021!


1) Go to to Register and Donate Today!
2) Personalize your page with a favorite picture of your loved one and a message from your heart as to why you are walking and why you think it's important to participate and help raise support.

3) Make a self-donation! It is much easier to ask others to support your team and donate, if they know that you have set the example!

And then...
