ALS slowly and painfully robs people of their ability to walk, talk and eventually breathe. The local chapter of the ALS Association works tirelessly to make life better, more comfortable, for those living with ALS and the family who are often also deeply affected by the hardships brought on by this disease. ALS (also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease) stops people from moving, but the Ride to Defeat ALS on July 12 is an opportunity to ride for those who can’t.
About the Routes
The event starts at the huge Mt. Angel Community Festhalle, home of the annual Oktoberfest. Routes range from 100 to 3 miles with five route options. Sign up for the full hundo ride and you’ll meander through Silverton, Stayton and along the quietest rural roads as you work your way over to Willamette Mission State Park then back to the Festhalle for a finish line party.
Go Solo or Team Up
You can sign up the ride as an individual, or form a team. Teams can be anywhere from two to twenty people, and virtual team members are welcome. The goal is to raise funds to support the ALS Association so they can continue their good work.
