The ALS Association understands that many of you in our ALS community may have questions and concerns related to the spread of the coronavirus, known as COVID-19. We are closely monitoring local and national government health agency guidance on this evolving situation. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of people with ALS, their families and caregivers, and our staff
Each year we put on over 15 fundraising events. These events support our financial viability and are core to our mission. For the remainder of 2020 all Chapter-sponsored events will not be held in-person. We will notify participants via our website, email, and social media on alternative plans.
For the most recent information about the coronavirus (COVID-19), The ALS Association recommends that you reference the websites for the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO).
Raise Funds to Fight Lou Gehrigs Disease: Help create a world without ALS by getting involved in the way that best suits YOU! When you fundraise with family and friends you take us closer to discovering a cure.
This year has brought so many changes for the Evergreen Chapter. As we got closer to our new date of August 15 for the Hope Grows Here gala, we realized that an in-person event in Bellevue, WA would not be safe for a large group. We have transitioned to a 100% virtual event and the silver lining is now ALL can attend from anywhere in the chapter and beyond. We have renamed this year's gala the Virtual Silver Lining Gala. You can join in August 15, 2020 at 6 pm on a cell, tablet, computer or other device near you! To register, type silverlining.alsa-ec.org in your browser. Then, click on the 3 lines in the upper left hand corner. There will be a drop down menu. At the very bottom you’ll notice a white rectangle box with blue lettering that says START BIDDING. Click that box. On the next screen, select CREATE ACCOUNT in the green box and follow the prompts.

#AllWalks1Day: A Walk in Your Neighborhood
This year the Evergreen Chapter planned on hosting ELEVEN Walk to Defeat ALS fundraising events. However, since we can't gather safely due to Covid-19 we are hosting #AllWalks1Day this year. #AllWalks1Day is an opportunity for us to safely walk in our neighborhoods to honor those living with ALS and remember those who have passed. The Evergreen Chapter territory is almost a million square miles, covering the largest land area of all the Chapters - almost a quarter of the United States! We would love to see support across our whole territory, touching each corner of the area we serve. Join us by clicking on either the #AllWalks1Day link to see nine of the walks and totals in one place or if your closest walk is Silver Valley or Anchorage, choose it directly from the list below. Find a Walk near you and join us in our mission to provide care & a cure for those affected by ALS!

*Due to the guidance from governmental officials surrounding the Covid-19 outbreak, we have switched our rides to virtual events to protect the community we serve. Please note, we will not be meeting in-person for the virtual events. Our fundraising events are a vital source of funds that enable us to serve the ALS community. All fundraising sites are active and functioning. We encourage you to register, update your participant page, and continue to fundraise as you would under normal circumstances.
Host an event for The ALS Association Evergreen Chapter! It can be anything from a Golf Tournament to a Mahjong Night, or, when you participate in marathons or other endurance events, use your event to raise funds in that way as well - be creative! Contact us to get started at 425-656-1650.
