Events

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.
