Triangle Walk to Defeat ALS in Raleigh hopes to raise $400K
People of all ages and abilities gathered for the annual Walk to defeat ALS in Raleigh (2023)

Join the ABC11 family as we work to defeat ALS and honor the memory of our friend and coworker Larry Stogner, who lost his battle with ALS in 2016.


Every 90 minutes, a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS, and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease.

ALS is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that causes a person's brain to disconnect from their muscles. They lose the ability to walk, talk, eat, and eventually breathe.

That's why ABC11 is committed to the fight against ALS. Each year, we walk to raise awareness and funds in hopes that one day there will be a cure.

Over 1600 people participated in this year's Triangle event that took place on Saturday, April 15 in downtown Raleigh. $359,920 was raised towards the goal, and there's still time to give. To donate to The ALS Association North Carolina Chapter click here.

Your donation to The ALS Association helps to bring education, support, and access to care to those in our area directly impacted by this disease.

Together, we can defeat ALS and provide hope to people and their families living with the disease.
