The Johnstown Walk to Defeat ALS® Turns 15!

This year’s Johnstown Walk to Defeat ALS®, presented by Stoystown Auto Wreckers, marks the 15th year that those in the Johnstown area have come together to raise funds and awareness for those in the community living with ALS. The first “Johnstown Walk to D’Feet ALS” was held in 2006 with a crowd of 278 walkers who raised over $58,000. The walk has since grown to 620 walkers raising over $118,000 in 2019. The Johnstown Walk to Defeat ALS continues to be a community event that honors those we have lost and raise funds to help those currently battling ALS.
We look forward to recognizing 15 years of the Johnstown Walk to Defeat ALS with you and your family.
