“We are honored to support this incredible cause that continues to impact the lives of so many. Having lost my father to ALS, this organization means a lot to me. The ALS Association is dedicated to finding a cure, and the amazing support they offer to those afflicted with ALS and their caregivers is so needed and appreciated,” says Stephen Shanton, president and CEO of Venture Construction Group of Florida, founder of the Shanton ALS Foundation.
The mission of The ALS Association is to lead the fight to treat and cure ALS through global research and nationwide advocacy, while also empowering people with ALS and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support. Money raised from annual ALS fundraisers supports people living with ALS as well as funds ALS research aimed at finding treatments and a cure for the disease. The ALS Association Florida Chapter provides free services and assistance for persons diagnosed with ALS, their families and caregivers.

The Walk to Defeat ALS is an opportunity for communities around the country to show their support for ALS and to bring awareness to the urgency in finding a cure. With almost 1,500 people in Florida alone suffering from ALS, any donations received from the statewide fundraisers directly impact the local community and help fund the care and research that goes into finding a cure.
