ALS is getting more attention than ever. Here in Windsor-Essex County, there is a growing number of events to help raise awareness and funds to meet the equipment needs of local people diagnosed with ALS. Feel free to attend any of our events — everyone is always welcome. We encourage your participation and appreciate your help.

Only upcoming and recent events will be featured on this main events page as a convenience.

2019 Events

The 6th Annual Dave Allin Classic Basketball Tournament

The 6th Annual Dave Allin Classic Basketball Tournament will take place at John McGregor Secondary School on January 25th and 26th, 2019. Last year, this event raised $27,000 bringing the total to over $100,000, which goes to support persons living with ALS in Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent Counties, and to support research.

The tournament entry fee is $150 per school, and if you are interested in participating, please contact Rich Allin via e-mail. The silent auction will take place again, with many great items, so we encourage you to come shop, starting Friday at 5PM and closing on Saturday at 3PM. Cash and cheque will be accepted.
