The June 20 Virtual Walk to End ALS has raised more than $400,000 — and counting.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, participants were asked to take a walk around the neighbourhood with their “bubble” and share photos on social media, tagging the ALS Society of BC on Facebook.
As of June 26, more than $412,000 has been raised by virtual walks in communities across B.C., including in Kamloops.
Proceeds from the Walk to End ALS support research into the motor neuron disease (40 per cent of proceeds) and community-based support (60 per cent of proceeds) for people and families living with the disease.
Donations for the Walk can still be made at www.walktoendals.ca/british-columbia.
